Got my stainless steel scales today

I thought they would be shiny-er, thicker, and I thought there would be more of them. I got a few disks as well from the punch outs that didn't filter out. And they are quite greasy, I'm starting to think they are not a very good quality of stainless (because they will rust if left wet and it was necessary to put this film on them and in their bag), but I am glad they are at least creased and here. When they first came I thought maybe my order had gotten mixed up with regular mild steel scales. I think im gonna go over them with a polishing wheel to buff them up and make them look a little better. It should also be noted that I am quite picky and hard to please, so for people reading this, don't be too disheartened. I'll make sure to post pictures of my progress so people can see for themselves.

Me and My girl rubbed about 40 or so of the scales down and after putting them together I'm feeling better about buying them. They do look shiney-er now and the buffing wheel on my dremmel didn't make that much of a noticeable difference, so I'm just going to rub them all down with a rag.

I was thinking about doing that, but It says the scales will rust if left exposed to water for awhile so I figure I would have to dry them individually anyways with a rag so I thought I would just do it dry from the start. I'm pretty happy about the way they look using just a rag.

I toss my scales in my vibratory tumbler with walnut shell, and about 2 capfuls (plus or minus 1/2 a cap) of NuFinish car polish. Makes a HUUUGE difference.
