this would seem to be a surprisingly rip-roaring debate in my circles. polish the riviera or leave her naturally ‘antiqued’? i’m leaning toward the ‘to polish’ end, though i’ve had numerous advisers against the notion. hmmm. pic here shows the brass grouphead already shined up, but the copper boiler housing left as is, for now.
