Im currently debating what finsh to give my sunn exact ti frame. I was originally thinking about doing a brushed finish on it but i quite like the idea of giving it a tarnished/unfinished kind of look. I know you can create some nice burnished colours with heat and also "paint anodize" titanium but im wondering if there is anything that would give it a mottled unfished look as you can with raw steel and aluminium without using a scotchbrite or wet and dry?

Stickers are gone as the frame was pretty ratty when i got it. Also ive had to have the top of the seat tube chopped because of a stuck seatpost and the last owner trashing it trying to get it out. Look at my posts and there is info on it there :)
