Alright~ slapped my 2100 system in it, and realized these scratches need fixing!
Sooo~ i grabed a small peice of case i had from when i modded sigma's case, took a screw driver and put 3 big honkin scratches in it~ and sanded it with 120g, removing the finish and all traces of srcatching. Then i sanded it (wet) with 400, getting rid of the rotary marks from the 120 (i have a 6inch PorterCable random orbital sander i used)~ then i used a rubbing compound, and a polishing compound. It has a nice brushed aluminum look that i can see my self in. Next step is some mothers carnuba wax for protection, and it should look great! (Mind you this is all on the test peice, and i dint spend more then 1min on each step, so i could just get a general idea, looks good so far)
Next thing i have to do is get my camera back, and do it on the case itself!

THis time i will go~
