whats great about the MCW30/60 Plates... i might be able to get away with just one 4"x4" square.

EDIT: i can definitely get away with just one square!

And I can attest that it's completely worth it.

Still not a single bit of bending. Compared to the stock plate, which as you know was warped to high hell.

DO you only make it shiny or can we have it brushed?

gir is correct, you can specify how you want it.

by default, i'll be polishing it to a shine but if you want it brushed instead jsut let me know.
