    I would like to have a matched custom pair like in the movie(HITMAN).

    Default "Brushed" Stainless finish

    "One frame will be green od and the other will be brushed SS. Not sure how to do that yet."

    We used to generate a "Brushed" finish in square stainless tubing by grinding it lengthwise on a belt sander ( with a platen, not loose belt).
    We used 80 grit (YMMV, experiment), keep the part in the same position at all times so all the scratches line up.
    Don't track the part across the belt, just set it down, let the sander do its thing and lift straight off.
    Moving the part lengthwise up and down the belt is ok, but don't lift off until you reach the end of the part.
    This works great for flats, curves are a bit trickier.
    A bit of practice on scrap will do wonders.

    You can also do this by hand, just follow the same rules and stroke the part in one direction only all the way to the end on the abrasive.
    If you stop, reverse or lift off early, you will create "J hook" marks in your finish.

    Nice info thanks! I will need to practice this method to see if I like the outcome. Thanks again.
