As you may have noticed, another update published today:

(Metal cases look special, but tbh I was expecting high glossy finish, not metal with grainy look.)

The textured finish on the Amiga cases probably doesn't give a glossy look no matter what you try. In hindsight it might have been better to make a run of smooth cases for the electroplating like the prototypes before acid etching the molds with the final texture. Always difficult to judge what something looks like in real life from a short youtube video though, maybe they will look more "polished" in different light.
