Looks like it was soda blasted. Is that correct? Looks like a good opportunity to test your painting skills. These horns were painted with "rattle can" paint and they look terrific.

About all you can do is either leave it as-is or paint it. If you paint it, have the dents and creases removed first. Nothing looks worse than nice paint over rumpled metal.
