Ugly silverburst becomes modded into very much uglier non-artistic abomination. From bad to worse. You can tell it's a lazy, thoughtless "design" by noticing that the work was done only on the most easy to reach places. I don't like silverbursts at all, and the older ones wioth yellowed clearcoats are especially cheesy, but why not preserve it for someone who does like the original finish, and do that crap "art" (which isn't really art) on something else? Like a sheet of paper you can throw away, as it deserves? I love the "too cool" description. What nimrod wrote that?

hahaha - I actually had the exact same thought!
I think silverburst is awesome when it's new, but I'm not a fan of the big yellowed dark drop.
honestly if I were the owner, i'd just refinish in something cool, like a bullseye or something
