    Polishing techniques

    Hew folks soon going to embark on polishing up my provari I know this can be done without stripping it down. But I have already decided that I will fully strip it down ( I know how to do this )

    I'm interested in hearing what techniques people have used, ie grade of paper/ rotary wheels/ compounds etc etc

    I will soon have access to a dremmel tool, would be interested in what attachments people have used ( felt pads??? Etc)

    Any project pics would be appreciated

    Current finish on the mid Is gold ( looking a bit tatty now)

    If its gold plated use reverse electrolysis to remove the gold then buff then re-plate

    Will take me a while cause I'm waiting on the gear to come in and will need time to practice.

    Won't do anyone's gear until I can do it top notch.

    Electronics will need to be removed though as mine is a bath style not like Igetcha69 brush plating.

    Ooh. Bugzme, will you be doing silver too. A few might want their mech mod contacts and switches done, the brass positive pole and nuts on the DID, or is all that to fiddley?

    why would you want silver over gold on contacts ?
    gold has been the contact plating of choice for years, so long as its a non wiping contact that is.
