    I'd like to see how you held it on the lathe.

    Personally, I'd be pretty hesitant to rev the plastic cover in any chuck, because I'd hate to melt the surface thru rubbing friction.
    A much less cumbersome setup is to not set the cover up at all, as shown by Bob (on Doubleboost's site),
    Some chrome polish, a few rags and 6 minutes of elbow grease in this case (YMMV):
