Lots and lots of more fun stuff today.
First and best thing is my new, correct, VA arrived!! With new VA screw as well.
After looking at my parts I decided I needed to get back to the basics and really sit down and do them right. I kinda slacked the first time around so I got a bright work light and wet sanded all the parts down to 600 and 1200. Spent a little time working on this (read over 2hrs just wet sanding 2 grits)
Then spent some time on the polishing wheel.
They came out good but not quite what I want and knew I would probably need to step up to 2000 grit like I normally do. Currently working on scratching up the shiny parts and then will repolish even better.
The frame is up to 400 grit for now, hopefully will be up to 2k tonight as well and ready for polishing.
Body still haven't been touched, kinda putting it off for a minute.
Bought a dremel polishing kit for doing small spots, the breech of the gun etc.
Finally got my valve out, made a valve tool for $2 so the body is fully stripped.
