    Cap Ring (Or Any) Scratch Removal

    First of all, this is just a show and tell, not instructions per se. If you broke your pen, I will laugh at you and tell you to bugger off. But, someone has requested this, and I have time to spare, so yea. Okay, here's the step by step cap ring scratches removal on a Pelikan. Let's start this off with showing what the [first world] problem is. http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2822/9796054335_7c8cae5e70.jpg Multiple ring scratches where the cap ring sits on the barrel. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3730/9796089576_0b59e136f0.jpg Heavy scratches demand heavy grit (caution! Start off with a softer grit and gradually find the roughest grit needed.. in my case, 1000 wet and dry, etc.) Then after the deep scratches are gone, then let's remove the "cloud".. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7300/9796060745_850733d9b1.jpg Gradual micromeshes applied parallel to the pen. From teal to grey. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7301/9796079514_f16bd9019b_z.jpg Moving on to liquid solutions. Novus #3 applied perpendicular to the barrel. Skip the official instructions, because you'll save money with plastic/cellophane instead of cloth applicator here, only very little amount needed. http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2875/9796096446_d7448fd638.jpg Now it's time to use microfibre cloth for the Novus #2. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7304/9796144193_3697743dc0.jpg Novus #1, looking good already. And yes, I reckon it's worth to buy #1. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3743/9796073765_717b26e00c.jpg Voila. Tools used: Wet&dry sandpaper 1K-2K, Micromesh 4K-12K, Novus 1 to 3 (2 oz bottles should be right for most), Turtle Wax scratch repair, scotch tape, and microfibre cloth. And it took me a good two hours to do it. Ask away and lemme know if something's unclear etc. Hth. Tony PS: By the way, the pen was Pelikan MC110 with Iroshizuku Yama-guri.
