    don't blink.
    polishing is sanding/sandblasting & using a polishing compound on to make shiny.
    chroming is a chrome coat that goes over the exsisting surface
    & powder coating is a powder sprayed onto a surface with a powdercoating gun & then you bake the item at high temperatures to cure it. similar to ceramic coating.

    powdercoating usually isin't to make it shine, its usually to make it a certian color. but it can be a chrome-like or silver color.
    polishing & chroming are obviously to make it shine.
