Im sorry, I wrote that out kind of bad. What I mean is that I bought the mirror, it is fully polished as far as the glass goes. I just sent it out to get aluminized, the shop did the aluminization, but they left the coating hazy.. They tell me that the coating needs polishing, how do I go about doing this? I actually need to polish the aluminum to get it to perfectly reflect, right now it looks very very hazy.
