I've removed the deeper scratch from my Recsea flat port using P400, P600 and P1200 sandpaper (following a YouTube video) and the surface 'looks' and feels glossy after polishing with Brasso, but I cannot for the life of me remove the large 'mass' of small hazing scratches that now cover most of the small flat port resulting from sandpapering out the scratches, rendering it unusable in this state. Any suggestions please? Has anyone had success fixing Recsea (or other compact) flat ports with micro mesh and Novus, or anything else? I'm wondering whether there's a different technique / tools required for compact flat ports, or whether Recsea ports can't be de-scratched? Is this port now cactus, or can it somehow be saved? Grateful for all advice asap - thank you.
Hi, all. I've upgraded my dome ports from plastic to glass, so there's about $50 worth of polishing pads and liquid abrasives sitting on my equipment shelf gathering dust. If you have a plastic dome port, I'm guessing you WILL need it sooner or later. If you're willing to pay for shipping from central California to wherever you are in the USA, I'd be happy to give it to you for free. Might as well get some use out of it, right? First come, first served. Drop me a PM and let me know where you're located. Sorry, I'm not willing to go through the hassle of overseas shipping.
Hi, after reading many reports from people who succesfully removed scratches using Novus polish i tried to do the same with my dome port. Started from polish no. 3 (heavy scratch remover) I was able to remove the biggest scratch, but introduced like hundrets of new smaller ones. Then using polish no. 2 (fine scratch remover) I removed previously introduced scratches but introduced new, even smaller ones. I can see them when looking through the dome into a light source. I tried to repeat last step a few times, turning the dome 90 degrees, and the scratches stay there, only changing direction. What am I doing wrong ? Thanks! Piotr
