Well here is my cheap 1928 PPS after everything modern chemicals and elbow grease can do, short of stripping, polishing and bluing. I tried to give it that well used look without the really bad spots of finish loss, rusty patina and worn places. I think it looks good, hope you do to.

Check the before pics...before anyone scolds me for over correcting "Honest wear". A bruised fender could be considered honest wear on a Jag XKE but I don't think so.

It looks good! Now hand polish it all over Lightly with Flitz. It will look even better! Lightly is the key word!

What the hey, polish the rest of the blue off with Flitz and lots of hard rubbing!

I've gone well beyond Fltz, but that's my secret. I can't do any more without Collects guiding my hand.

Looks like a righteously puffed up piece to me.
To my way of thinkin', a cosmetic improvement that doesn't remove the character of that fine old gun is exactly what that thing needed. I have more old beaters than any other kind, but they are at least kept clean and in as presentable condition as I can manage.
Good save.
