I bought this at the RC shop, yeah I know, I should have ask for commission
from the owner for advertising online... LoL
It comes in 6 pieces, 400x2, 600x1 and 1000x2.
Here, I cut them into squares (2cmX2cm)
Here's how I cut the nubs, same as everybody else, right?
I cut more with my nipper as close as I can get to the part.
File it slowly and lightly, not to leave too much marks or scratches
from the file
Less scratches right?
I start with the 400, notice the flow when I'm sanding it.
Then I go for the 600, I fold the paper so I don't have to use much.
See the grind, it's starting to smooth
Since the nubs was in 2 different places, I decided to sand the entire surface.
Use 1000 after the 600. Don't mind the dust if you have the protective mask on.
you can brush off the excess with a toothbrush or any other soft brushes
Here's an extra info, nail buffers!! There's 3 surfaces here,
the black - coarse, white - fine, green - smooth finish on the other side.
I go for only black and white, I don't want my parts to shine like a brand new car.
How you do with the nail buffers are simple:
Use the coarse and do exactly as you do with sanding, then use the white,
green is only when you want your parts to shine.
Can you see where the nubs were?
Thats what I call a good finish.
So there you go, Now here's another thing, if you wanna go for the color change, I suggest you to not use the buffer, and let it be by the sandpaper, then you spray the selected parts that you want to change color by surface primer 1st, and let it dry.
The purpose of the surface primer is to cover all the scratches from the filing and the sanding. Also it can use to cover the parts where you glued them together.
So If there's any missing skill that I don't know about, let me know and we can share ^^
