HEP, I know this isn't a "how to" thread, so I fully understand if you choose not to respond. I own a pristine AFMr LE (my favorite pin), but since I've bought it (second owner) the scratched interior of the scoop distresses me visually every time I play the game. I finally decided to try to do something about it, so I removed it this evening and polished it. My guess is that it came from the factory that way so maybe those are tool marks, as the game had less than 50 plays when I purchased it.
While it cleaned up pretty well, it still has all of those ugly looking scratch marks towards the base of the interior scoop and could still be polished better. My question is how to I get rid of the scratch marks and overall rough surface? I assume some sanding with certain grits then some polishing, but I've never done anything like this before. Again, if you choose to comment I appreciate it, but I also want to be considerate of you and this thread so I understand if you prefer not to.
After polishing - still needs a lot of work
