Oil filter

I bought an old oil filter from a friend of mine. As much as I like polish metals I hate poor chrome ! This filter housing was (of cause) chrome, and it’s not just chrome, it’s some cheep weak china chrome, I really can’t stand it : ) haha.

Anyway it’s not worth the bitterness, and luckily there ís a solution to the problem. Today I removed the chrome by using a file and some sandpaper.

I polished the aluminum part and right now the lower part is just raw steel with a little leftover of copper plating. My plan is that I’ll just give it a layer of clear coating to keep the raw look. If it turns up to be a bad idea I’ll paint it black instead.
