Re: Charlie Brown's Restorations

What an amazing transformation!

Forgive me for asking, how did you remove all of the scratches from the cages? I understand if this a trade secret and you cannot divulge your process.


Thank You
Billy

No problem! I use a series of sand paper on a DA, or/and abrasive pads on a die grinder.
