    Advice on matte stainless mod

    Hey guys, just curious if anyone knows how to remove scratches from matte stainless steel mods, I've looked everywhere and apart from bead blasting I couldn't find any other options.

    Much appreciated.

    How deep? If it's light scratching a blue scotchbrite may work

    Very light surface scratches. Has some deeper nicks but not too concerned about those. I'll give the blue scotchbrite ago .

    Cheers

    I've done a few now. I used an old carto as a mandrel and spun then up in a drill press, but a battery drill would work too. A bit off soapy water as lubricant and green scotch brute is good. The blue after will give you a finer brush.

    haha I think we'd need to set up a meet at the steamers before I dare touch my paps laurie.... then again having to touch it could be avoided if I keep it scratch free.
