sanded   with 60 grit then straight to 180 grit until most of the scratches have gone, you should be able to see the colors start to look a bit brighter the I used a homemade polishing wheel out of denim jeans and toothpaste :thumbs:     still takes ages tho... anyone tried using a blow torch  to melt just the surface

Tried a blowtorch.... doesnt work too well....burns it a little...even when your careful....

Kind of like a 'rough' finish on them.... lets you keep good grip.... even when your hands are wet....

Adds to the 'scrapyard' look :whistling:

Tried a hot spoon to smooth, nut no great success, so I just trim the rough corners with Stanley's Wife and leave it at that.

Love the 'home-made' look  myself  - no two the same !!  :thumbs:
