    Me neither. When I had Justin's/Hans' white NF3 all I could think of was how Bangin'! it would look with one.

    this brings me to ask, why only chrome pickup covers get the burnt treatment. Can gold covers be done and look just as good?

    When chromium steel is heated, a surface oxide layer forms ranging from yellow to deep blue.

    Gold does not oxidize easily.

    Uh, well, I wasn't exactly thinking stainless steel, but I guess that WOULD hide coffee stains...
