    I had dropped a set off a few months ago. They were in really bad shape with pits and the finish was in terrible shape.
    the other set is off the hood I recently purchased.

    Here the difference between one that I just got back

    Outside set are the ones just back from being chromed

    I'll be dropping off the other ones to have them refinished tomorrow.

    Those look really nice, both actually! I think they are supposed to have a texture to them and were not shiny chrome.

    Does anyone have a good close up picture if what they should look like?

    I had to get those refinished due to the finish and was full of pit and blisters.
    I can always dull them up with a scotch brite.

    The newer set do have some scratches on then I might see what the buffing wheel will do to them befoe I go resort to replating them.

    The power bulge hockey stick inserts are a non-polished matte finish with flat black painted indents. The surface should not be smooth or shiney. I took a look at your pictures of the refinished inserts and think they look great chromed! I'm also in the market for a decent pair of inserts for my bulge hood.
