http://www.overclock.net/faqs/70395-...ps-my-big.htmlYes why not?Get grit 400 600,800,1000,1500 and if is possible get 2000 grit for the final touch.Now get a piece of glass or plexiglass and use a flat surface.I tape the sanpaper like that dont move.Now I use a little of water and start.with the 400.Move up or down and or side to side.Keep going until grit 2000 or 1500 and be sure is flat and polish.Grab the big t in the base is easy to move.And dry then put it back in and BAMMMM.Better temp's.Hope it help.If not is a good guides in here in the forum.Good luck.
actually the kit is only five dollars which isnt bad and they take paypal with shipping its six bucks. but you will not be able to purchase this any place for cheaper, the only place you can even find 1000 or 2000 grit sandpaper would be a hobby shop and then u would have to buy a package of each grit, a variance from 300 to 1000, and each package would cost you about the equivalent of the whole kit......................
Im from the uk m8 and the kits are about £10 {$20} And thats the cheap one without postage
Good advise: take your time.

go to your local paint store where thay sell paint in balk... they usually have paint supplies and you can buy the grit paper by the single sheet...

I got some from screwfix, had to buy 5 sheets of each though and postage was about £5 too, always an option if you can't get it any where else
