So today, inspired by WD's Marin build, I thought I'd have a go with the Ringle's I have.......

It's a brave man that takes abrasives to a set of Ringle's, I can tell you... :lol:

But a quick 20min rub and a quick polish, and here's the result:

Well the key with the power tools is to go REALLY gently and do little bits at a time.

Failing that, I had good results with 120 grit emery and a load of elbow grease... 8)
