Hi All,
I'm going to mod my Seiko SNGZ15 with Yobokies' stuff and I'd like to polish the sides and the bezel that is, now, bead/sand blasted. Does anybody know if it is possile just using the Dremel or I have to sand before?
Thanks a lot!

I wouldn't use a dremel, as you could easily remove too much material. Start out with sandpaper...maybe around 600 and working your way up to 1500-2000... by hand. You can finish off with Never dull. If you want to give it a brushed look, use the red scotchbrite pad. This is how I've done it but I'm sure there's some alternate ways. Above all...take your time :thumbup:

Hope this helps

With Dremel I meant with polish wheels only :)

If you polish a sandblasted surface with a rotary tool you are going to get a dull finish with tiny bumps.

I would try doing what he said.

Thank you!
I will open a 3D when I'll start my build. I'm waiting for the parts from Yobokies and a new movement (Seiko NH35)
