during the installation of my PTP blanket, I decided to do a polish on the bracket. I used a wire wheel and jewelers rouge on a buffing wheel. although I opted to do a bit less than a mirror polish, it came out well. due to the bracket being steel I just sprayed a clear coat over it to prevent corrosion. sorry but I didn't take any pictures.I was sold on the benefits. It's also an extra layer of protection to the exterior paint finish over the turbo. Installed it in May 2017. Still have to paint the ugly turbo mounting bracket.
