looks really smooth, but you have t touch it to know for sure. Did you cup the inside of the front end?

yeah i touched it, and then touched with my eyes closed concentrating to find dug in areas and deep scratched, thank god i didnt find any. i dont have a dremel to do it. my friend accross the street does, so i will go later and do it.

WHOW dude .... you can't only concentrate on the scratched areas ... You have to move in a circle so it's completely round ...

For cupping the ball .. just take sandpaper (go from low to high grit) and sand on the end circle, but in the inside

This mod has pictures with it

i did, its what i do at work. am a painter, so sanding is what i do everyday to prepare walls for paint. when you do it in a circle you get everything evenly. sorry if i didnt mention sanding in circles rotations.

for the cupping, thats a good idea too
