    Billet Box Restoration

    After much angst with the weather and having to redo the final coat (humidity ruined the finish) it is finally complete. The last pieces like the button and titanium screw (thanks kingy) finishes the look. It's just beautiful.



    You have seen these before

    This is the before and after stage one. Panels have been removed, case was wet sanded with 500, 1000, 2000 grit. Kitten cut and polish for the initial buff and then brasso and a lot of elbow grease. Most of the scratches are gone and the major dings are diminished.

    Before (pics from sale thread)



    After

    I just read you post out to Mr XX and he is very interested always looking for quality finishes and of course the right equipment.

    Thank you everyone. This was even more special because of the rarity of the polished billet boxes. Not many left

    Very sexy indeed!

    The tit rings are so much better than the original brass rings

    A sneak peak at the next set. (The new one from kingy) No where near solved but close to the design I want.
