Quote from: HudValley on December 18, 2012, 07:05:20 PMI am new to this and I love the restoration process. I feel like I am having success; however, my finished product has thousand of light scratches from the sanding that are only visible if the phone is held up close in direct light. I am using Novus #2 as a finishing polish. My questions are these: Are these sanding marks removable? In other words, can the plastic be smooth? If so, should I continue to painstakingly polish with the Novus #2, or is my fault in the step-by-step sanding process earlier?Are these sanding marks typical and just not apparent in the photos of the awesome work you guys do?I am using 3M Micron polishing papers (6 steps from 30 microns to 1 micron "grit").Any responses would go along way in alleviating my frustration.I have included a photo of a side of a recent project to demonstrate what I'm talking about.
