Take your time Oli, it's coming along wonderfully
The flush windows are always nice, this is looking gorgeous!
Not a fan at all of side window but I like the way you did it and I also like the "smoke" tint you had done to it.
I love the window, I want to do something like that with my lian li V2000.
Hey Oliver, what steps do you take to polish your edges back up that nice?
I need to polish some of mine up after cutting it.
I like it a lot so far, makes me want a tj07.
1. Mark out exactly where you want your edge to end up at with tape on every side of the acrylic
2. Cut about 1-2mm away from the edge of the tape
3. Grab a file and file down any large lumps left from cutting until you are about 0.5mm from the edge of the tape.
4. Start with a coarse sandpaper, say 80 grit. If you want a 'rounded' look like mine, just use the sandpaper in your hand. If you need it flat, wrap some around a block of wood.
5. Run the sandpaper along the length of the acrylic so all scratches are going in the same direction.
6. Keep sanding until there are no saw marks or large marks left.
7. Go to a higher grit sandpaper - say 120-200. Repeat steps 5 and 6.
8. Keep repeating with different grades of sandpaper. There is no need to go past 400 grit.
9. Grab a rough cloth and some Brasso (liquid metal polish). Clamp your piece of acrylic if possible. Put some brasso on the cloth, then rub the edge with lots of pressure. You will see it start to go shiny. The more you do it, the shinier it will get and the more scratches you get rid of. Lots of pressure is needed.
