Somethings cannot be unseen - The wrap is definitely a solution but at this point i'm gonna photoshop something and see how it looks like.

I really like that silver and tour de france mix. Don't think i've ever seen it on a morgan 3 wheeler

DeLorean featured brushed stainless steel panels & has to be cleaned with cooker polish 🤔😥

Yes, I think the brushed aluminium would certainly give a retro look, just like the Kirkuk Cobras.. Excellent choice.

I need to find someone who is proficient at Photoshop to have a look at what it would look like.

Osten, a couple of weeks ago I say a car going through build with a brush aluminium bonnet/ hood. As we don’t touch car going through build I had to ask about the finish as I could not tell whether it was a paint finish or what. Anyway I was told it was brushed aluminium. So I guess best to ask your dealer.

Marcassus, the French dealer Morgan of Toulouse offers the mirror polished body option at 9746 euros

It's very nice for a museum, but for regular use on the road, the interview looks difficult ...

brushed is what I wanted as well. At that time not available.
what you can have now (since a few months) is "untreated", resp. bare aluminium, on request!

You just don't get a clean look: the front and rear bonnet are both "blown" (air-pressure over a negative) and look very virgin.

The sidewalls are pressed/rolled and you know by the look its been pressen/rolled.

So either you get it untreated and you brush it by yourself or - since you can get any colour from MMC, I bet you can also get it brushed.

You just need to talk to the right person. (and THIS IS actually where the problem starts) ;-)

probably far easier and cheaper to simply get a brushed aluminum vinyl applied.

However I agree with comet, either learn to DIY, or be ready to pay high dollar for a professional to do it.

at the time, I was offered the polished version with the proposal to leave it to "weathering" it
