As the title says, show us your polished bits!  Extra credit for pointlessness, for example my suspension cones here :D :

Do you have your own anodising kit? Id love to anodize some of my ally parts, those hi-lo trumpets corrode so fast!

 

As for shiney-ness, heres my interior with Heuer stopwatches, and my new Rim-flo valves, yet to be run :D
