What are You coating it with?? Heat is a factor here bad idea man. A suggestion for you, Get some steel wool and some chrome polish and just clean it up when it starts looking crappy and besides its stainless steel so its not gonna rust.
"They don't make no seatbelt for the mind. So I can't buckle up for this ride!"
true, don't sand it you'll get hella nasty swirls and scratches that'll never come out even if you clear coat over it. it's stainless steel so it shouldn't have any problems, but nothing is gonna last forever so it will over many many years eventually show some wear.
