i got this synthetic steel wool. scoth brite pads i think they were called. they worked great, and w/o all the steel poking your hands

well i did it with great ease too. I had 0000 instead of 000 so it wa sa bit finer but still good enough. I let my dad feel when it was still a bit rough where i had only rubbed one poart and he finally believed me it was better then... Laughing Thanks for all the help guys

I used a high grit 800-1000 wet dry paper (for auto body work) and hand sanded it. It didn't take very long and became very smooth.

I didnt wear gloves Laughing

I wish i woulda ran down to my friends house before i did it last night...i explained what i was doin and said a dremel would have been awesome to have. His dad opens a drawer and he has like 30 different dremel tools all diffeerent sizes and different power sources and he had like 12 different polishing wheels....woulda been so much better than the steel wool Laughing

Probably faster too, but it's probably best to do MOST with a Dremel and then finish it up with some steel wool.
g36 monkey

yea...what i would have done if i could have got my hands on one...we have a dremel just no polishing wheels or wax.

i took the webbings off an ion with a dremel. after hours of doing it with a razor knife, i went to my house, got a dremel, and finished the job in like 10 min

but i wouldn't use a dremel for polishing, i would be afraid of taking too much off some how
g36 monkey

it says its the other way how and that was how model98.net reccomended it.

I tried using my dremel wire-brush and polishing wheel... that was a pain in the ass... Took waaaay to long with that stupid tiny little wheel.

So I tried steel wool... took forever to get through the paint. So I got paint stripper. Worked so well! Took that paint right off, just kinda hard to use on the curves. So.... i got a large drill wire-brush attachment. Through the paint in under 30 seconds. Best thing to use.

i used a dremmel and a polishing tip with some alum polish.....it's like a mirror!
g36 monkey

i thought this was just smoothing it out Thinking
I didnt know you had to get alll the paint of too....i got most of it off but its in tiny lil areas i dont care about....i would use my paint stripper but im afraid ill miss and strip my a-5 Shocked
TriggerHappy1

One side of my receiver had a thick layer of paint, like it is in the outside... The other half just had overspray. The paint stripper helped on both very well. Only thing was- a bit seeped through the cocking slot and took some of the inside edges of it. Nothing really, just watch for that.
g36 monkey

i think ive cleaned and smoothed it up good enough to get the effect..i dont need super shiny and i dont want to have to take t apart...ther eis that one spring right next to the air thing that always wants to pop out and drive me nuts so i dont take my gun apart very often because of that Laughing
