    yup its been done, hotley here just posted an example last week. I assume the basic steps woul be to strip back the plasma coat, then polish the actual Xmetal below.

    Strip the Plasma with a 240 barrel or soak it?

    i reckon no harm grinding, just slow and steady. youre gonna polish it after anyway. as long as you dont rip chunks out of it youre fine.

    Is there a better grit to use to avoid taking material off?

    if youre worried about the 240 you can go 400 but anyhting higher i think is abit unnecessary.. im sure you'll see once it blows past the plasma coat and you just keep it moving to avoid cutting too deep in one spot..

    good luck bro
