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.

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
