Again, I can't prove that what caused the dimpling effect around the rivets on the side. It may be just the shine allows me to see the blemishes.
My AS has dimples at the rivets too. I used the wool pads/ nuvite. I think they were always there, you can just see them better now. I didnt really think about it until you mentioned it. It is very consistent on mine and looks like it is supposed to be that way. Of course I have 34' of it which may make a difference in the consistency factor.

close enough to perfect for me

Thank you for admitting in writing that the mirror finish is not perfect. That is an unrealistically high standard and may cause some people to give up (or sit down and cry, in my case). You are right that in pictures the inperfections don't show up. Also, stepping back often while working is a good tip to keep up your morale. When you are finished you won't even notice the "not perfect spots" because the total effect is stunning!
