    I am in the process of procuring some Gen 1 Plasma Juliets. They are cheap, but that is partly because of the original plasma finish wearing off in some places. Has anyone figured out a way to remedy this?

    Thanks!

    Dr. Flgd had three pairs done in an original plasma finish, one was a R1, so it can be done. Just gotta know how to do it

    I'd like to know as well. I have a pair that has black stain around ear socks. Tried soap and sponge and didn't work out...

    ok yeah true, Anton has sources that can refinish xmetals. forgot about that.

    but its by no means a cheap process, defeating the purpose of buying a cheaper, slightly beat-up pair of plasmas.

    for just stains- use a metal polish. dont rub it around as the abrasive will make the surface shiny and you dont want that. let it sit maybe 5-10mins, let the chemical do its work then wipe off, gently. repeat if necessary. had worked for me most of the time..

    I've got a huge chunk of silicon carbide.

    That will turn it white?
