Maybe I will take a pic outside in better light so you can see the grain better. I think this is how stainless should look, like the stone tigereye almost. Now I'm curious what maroon pad would have looked like but I'd hate to redo.

This is a higher res pic outside, its cloudy might have been better if it was sunny.

Looks good, man, other than your smelly feet ruining the pic. I'd have to handle it to give ya a hi five, but looks great in the picture.

That looks really good I tried the same thing just to give a two tone look but was scared on removing too much with the wheel so I went at it by hand. Nice job!!!

Very nice job...finish is very similar to a Satin Nickel CZ75 Compact.
