I'm playing with this one. The slide is hard chrome plated. After getting it back from the plater. I decided to have the flats on the side of the slide done in a brushed finish. It will look like the Eguinox model with the exception it will be done all in hard chrome. It should look very nice with the satin and brushed chrome look. I'll post some pictures when I'm done. Being retired I have the time to play with this stuff. With this type of stuff if your in for a penny, your in for a pound. It never ends, I have fun with it. So back to the plater to have the chrome stripped off. Then I have to do the slide flats and have it replated.
