Polished Lip Empty
PostSubject: Polished Lip   Polished Lip EmptyMon Mar 15 2010, 15:36

Hi, not sure if this is the right section so please move to correct one if it isnt. I have got myself some ronal R15s and want to polish the lip on them. The previous owner has sprayed them some matte sort of colour and im just wondering what the best way would be to take the paint off, i want to do it myself and dont expect it to be show quality but yeh, so any ideas? Such as sandpaper pad on a grinder at a mediumish grit or would that cause to many scratches? Cheers
