1965 Chevelle Headliner Metal Side Trim

On my Chevelle I have some either stainless or aluminum pieces that go along the side of the headliner that have seen better days. Can these be polished or is it better to buy new? No real big scratches but just very dull and it looks like you could see where fingerprint/other grease over the years has sort of etched itself in the metal. Who sells the new pieces (I see some of the big names do) how is quality of the repo stuff and or who can refinishes these OEM pieces?

Factory pieces are anodized . In order to polish , must first strip the anodize . There are people that restore , at the cost of about $30 foot . I am in need of a nice set myself , and wish I knew how the aftermarket pieces fit .

I would search high & low for a nice set of originals before using the chinese reproduction crap.

I have a aftermarket set and they are actually pretty decent both in finish and fit.
Heres a thread I started the pictures are gone but will see if I have them somewhere or I can at least take some if the repro trim installed.
