    Ok first off I have done a search but may have over looked it, I am looking to see if anyone has a step by step on polishing a plasma Juliet frame. I have a non serial frame that I want to polish, I like polish look just not the hammer stems on a regular polished pair. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Just get a dremel, some polishing wheels, and some polishing compound then go to town on it.

    I do all my polishing with a fairly large metal buffer that most don't have access to so as far as how it do it won't be much help for most. But maybe others can help out with using dremel and such or hand polishing.

    Also from what I have seen polished with a dremel it will only get you so far. Here's a pair I have done with my method. They can pretty much pass for chrome once I am done.

    uuuuughghghgh !!!!!!!!

    my polished XX's !!!!!!

    if I need anything polished in the future, I will send everything to Zach...

    whatever he does, the tools and methods he uses is second to none...

    haven't seen dnkyhunter's polish jobs in person yet, but from what I've seen on the forums, his polish jobs look great...

    I feel confident in sending any frame to Zach for polishing simply based on my history with him.....

    I will look for a link I had posted on polishing a plasma. I doesn't just polish with a dremel. You have to first remove the plasma and it's a job. 300 grit to start or have it blasted.
    Factory on bottom, polished after plasma removed on top.
