But they have an Aluminum alloy that polishes up very nicely.
If you guys are wanting it to be able to rust, then there is a simple technique to imitate this. I'd suggest aluminum, that way folks could run it as is, or polish it for a shiny appearance, or use the proper paint on it to allow it to rust. I'll put together a tutorial on this if folks like.
