It's hard to believe there can be ghosts in a finish that bright, but there is. I've considered trying an acid wash on those areas, but haven't as of yet. I do know that there is one small area in the front that won't polish well at all. It's covered in very small dings from rocks kicking up, so I'd guess the alcad
is gone, or at least damaged pretty bad, as it is brownish. Good luck, and please post back if you find the solution! --dave

Now that my wife has seen this guess what she's expecting............
Darn, let the games begin.
