    I pay someone. Ship it to our own JOHNNIE42 here on the boards. Not sure of the spelling. You will be impressed with his work and can still have sex after it is done.

    If you called hpj then what are you doin with a dremel ? Thats not how i taught him! LMAO! Polishing is essentiallly GRINDING with progressively smoother paper. Its not sanding. Call me and i;ll school ya.

    Alot of things are worth the "Pride of doing it myself", this is not one of them. I did one last summer. Took way too long, was way too time consuming, and caused many a silent night with the better half. Sure it came out nice and I did it, but I will never attempt it again. As stated, pay to get it done. It will look a hell of alot better and you will feel better about it in the end.

    Default Can't beat 42johnny

    Man your best bet is to get ahold of 42johnny here on the boards, he did mine. Price was good and the work was outstanding.Click image for larger version.
