I keep a tube of MAAS in my hi-fi drawer and another in the garage for automotive use. It polishes bare metal (not clearcoated) to a beautiful luster (any good silver/metal polish should work well). The fine abrasive in these polishes is plenty; I wouldn't use an abrasive pad.

Don't know about survival of the lettering however.

I only said to possibly use a Scotch-Brite pad being that the clear coat looks removed already, and I've used it on aluminum engine case covers on V-Twin engines, and it comes out beautiful. Afterwards you can clear coat it if you would like, so you don't have to keep maintaining the aluminum.

WJE came up with the best solution, which would be to anodize them.

Shhh ... you'll give Grado some ideas.  They might release a "limited edition" black anodized version for $1,999.   :eek:   :D

While that Jaben cup has been around for a while, I'm not too fond of the color.  In fact, the color looks kind of sissy compared to the anodized nuts picture that I posted earlier. :D

I'm talking about fire breathing, give me a ticket red!

I will admit, I have never pulled the trigger on the Jabens because of that bilious candy-apple red...

i've home anodized bike parts before and it came out well.  there are many sites on the net for the avid DIY'r to get started on home anodizing using nearly any color you could imagine

 

i was drooling over woodies but this has got me thinking now :)

I was thinking about going for those cups, however the cup takes the driver in the sleeve, not a liberated driver :|  Which means my 125i's would still be in plastic :( Plus there's a built-in spacer, then the bowls for it...  They should advertise them as "If you hate bass, these are the cups for you!" lol
