I actually asked my paint guy to do the same with my OEM tank before seeing these pics, but then called him back to go with light silver.

I wanted it to look just like yours, but didn’t like the idea of painting it silver then running the scotch brite pad over it, then clear coating.

Yours looks like a factory race team aluminum tank. I love it.

Exactly, that was the inspiration. Dig the way those factory race bikes look unpainted when they first roll them out for testing.
As you mentioned scotch brite pad is what was used. Wasn't sure about it at first cause from certain angles and light looks pretty swirly. but it's just raw lol.

Thx again for comps g
