Smooth Natural Finish: This is the original cast aluminum finish after being tumbled in ceramic media resulting in a smooth, marble like texture unlike other rough, gritty cast surfaces which cleans up much easier than other covers. This is the standard finish on all the S/T covers.
Sanded Fins: This option creates a subtle yet defined contrast creating an "etched" appearance on the fins without creating too noticeable of an appearance.
Polished Fins: This option creates a prominent accent making the fins look like they stand out from the cover to appear even deeper than they are. First the fin tops are micro sanded then polished to a high lustre to remove most of the scratches and natural porosity. No round edges!
Black Wrinkle Powder Coat: the timeless nostalgic look of 60's, but with a smooth feel making clean up much quicker and easier. Hard-Coat power coated (not mere paint) for lasting, tough finish needing just soap and water for occasional cleanups.
Krome Powder Coat: An ultra shiny almost chrome-like powder coat finish that keeps the natural character of aluminum unlike polished and chromed results that end up looking more like stamped steel than cast aluminum. Hard-Coat power coated (not mere paint) for lasting, tough finish needing just soap and water for occasional cleanups.
Triple Chrome Plated: Our chroming process provides a brilliant chromed mirror finish while leaving all the details sharp and crisp. Our 5 step process involves sanding the cover for high adhesion and then covering with a high nickle plate, then several copper platings, where the copper is buffed to fill in and hide the imperfections in the aluminum casting which is then chrome plated.
Fully Polished: Our polishing process provides a smooth rounded shape removing imperfections in the aluminum which results in a softer and fluid finish with the natural color of highly polished aluminum radiating through.
Painted Fin Valleys: Hand painted accents in the valley between the fins sets an elegant contrast similar to a negative alternative to krinkle black covers with machined fins.
