I Purchased This MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch i9 for dirt Cheap since it was cosmetically Damaged.

So After Some Research I decided I Would make an Attempt to fix it since I'm gonna use this MacBook Pro as My "real MacBook" and keep my HacbookPro 4k as my HDR 4k Hackintosh that I built :D. Now to the reason I'm HERE. I hand polished and sanded down the top and polished the top case with 'NEVR-Dull' polish and this is the result! not only did this fix the cosmetic issue, but it also made my 16 inch look really customized. I haven't seen one like this yet!

That is beautiful and how long did it take to polish?
Have you had to touch it up from fingerprints or oil?

I don't want to be that sour person, but it looks terrible. It has also been done before (it always looks terrible, though). I would've just wrapped it in gray vinyl and be done with it, but if you like how it looks, I guess that's all that matters. How much did you get it for?

you can be sour all you want.. hurts me none. I own all this stuff. most people that are sour, are the ones who don't own any of it. yes its been done before, on cheap old models. have you seen it on a 16 inch i9? (maybe not) what kinda high end custom stuff you own? by the looks of your SIG, maybe nothing.

You ask people what they think and then attack them when they tell you ?

Dude, chill. He just told you how he feel bout this. He even said "but if you like how it looks, I guess that's all that matters". If you post stuff here, people are gonna comment. Learn to handle them better than this.
