    I don't know exactly what you mean about the finish of the gearbox bracket. It's a normal OEM part...
    I mean the finish of how it looks now, is it a brand new part or did you recondition it?

    The bracket on my car is a mess so I want to get it back to OEM finish, the circled part is what I mean

    Aaahhh I thought it had been painted or something like that, I want that look on all of my parts but past experience tells me it's not a good idea to keep them in bare blasted metal as they don't last very long & look very tatty after a very short time

    Yes, the bare aluminum will oxidize again and change the color again.
    Painting have disadvantages with such parts but also disadvantages. The paint will flake off during assembly.
    Then I prefer to clean the bare aluminum from time to time if necessary.
    This clio will not see any rain anyway...
