    I have a pair of plasma frames that are a later gen with no serial. They are in perfect condition except for some damage on the top of both orbitals where I assume that were dropped. Just wondering if anyone has tried polishing out scratches / light damage on the later gen plasma frames. I have a dremel with some soft pads, I could try, but didn't know if someone else knew something better to do.

    i wouldn't do that unless you're planning to convert your frame from a plasma finish to a polished finish.

    plasma is a coating that is darker than platinum and lighter than xmetal. its like paint on a car, rub the clearcoat off, then you have paint, rub the paint off you have primer. you cannot rub the primer to make the paint come back.

    How hard is it to turn a plasma frame into a polished frame? I got a plasma frame I would love to make a bright polished pair but not sure how...

    Shouldn't be any harder than any other original frame finish. Dremel, polishing wheel, appropriate polish medium. Time and effort.

    Do you know if there is a step by step thread? Sounds easy enough but I am kinda slow ;) does anyone know if the Xman does this?
