"Maybe it's time to try sandpaper instead of the Novus paste. I do like the orbital sander though - it made polishing heaps quicker! Not sure I'd be game to use it with sandpaper instead of the lambswool buffer."


 

They use a handheld Velcro holder for the two grades of abrasive, 1000 and 2000 grit.  I usually spend about half an hour carefully and evenly cutting the surface to keep it round before pulling out the drill and supplied buffing wheel and polish.  You have to be really even or you'll flatspot the dome.  My small dome comes from Bare and I can send it in for a new bubble if it gets really dinged up.  He only makes them for Nexus, though, so I had to buy a Sea & Sea adapter for Nexus domes.

If the scratches aren't too deep, the headlight repair kits with sandpaper do fine.  My friend took a razor to the top and bottom edges on his neoprene dome cover so it would go over more easily and stay on underwater.  He just cut a groove to slip over the shade rings.

I use one of these http://www.divervisi...ch=port adapteron my MDX-D300 with a Bare dome port for 10-17/10-17+1.4 and 60mm AF-D.  They make one for the M4 & M6 ports as well.
