I really want to polish the bezel/antenna.

Do you think that using a Cape Cod polishing cloth on it would be ok?

It's a fine watch and jewelry polishing cloth. If rubbed enough, can give a high polish or chrome to it.

Anybody know it this would affect reception at all?

Also, if someone to photoshop an ip4 with a polished bezel, that would be awesome!

I would recommend something like this. The antinna band is treated stainless and I would be willing to bet it wouldn't react well to a polishing solution. Even then I don't think you would be able to get to a "chrome" level of polish.

I use the cloths for my watches. Trust me, it will high polish metal if you rub long enough. I have also used a cape cod on the bezel of the 3g and returned the bezel to scratch free high polish.

I think I may go for it. I really dont see how a little polish would affect reception. Maybe someone can chime in with some tech knowledge on the antenna? I mean, if you get scratches on it, it shouldnt effect it right? so why not a bit of polish to the metal?

I did it. I did it by lightly sanding with 220 grit sandpaper then 600 grit then put it to a buffer. Lol it's a great look and doing this way doesn't alter the stainless steel at all.
