That's beautiful!...have you tried using a finer grit, maybe #600, on a rubbing pad? It'll give you a satin finish, also, try hand-sanding it in a single longitudinal direction. It'll look very much uniform.
Good job!

IMO chrome finish may look too shiny. Besides, to have all the 'wood' finish converted to chrome may be a little bit 'over-dressed' since there are just a lot of wood in front of you. Brushed-Aluminium finish or satin finish may just be what you're looking for. You might just want to try browsing through the WWW on some of the after-market car accessories supplier who may provide you with some good info and images. Good luck.

regards
