Yes... I was thinking the same thing as I posted those pictures lol. I only took a few "before" pictures, and that was the best one. I hurriedly took the after pictures, which weren't very good. The best one of the few I took happened to be upside down from the before picture, also you can see it's still missing the back two pieces. Going to have great weather this weekend, I'll get some better pictures.

I did not start out intending to sand off the Bitspower branding, but by the time I got the 400 grit to the point of moving onto 800 grit, it was half worn through! At that point I went ahead and used 400 grit until the branding etching was gone before moving onto the 800 grit. I'm with you about the "branding", I think it looks better without it thumb.gif
