Peter. You first. I will always put my painted items, (if enamel/laquer) in the sun. One, it dries hard and sharp, but our bodies produce an acid through our fingers and that will leave marks behind that are damn near impossible to remove.
Donald (with the rolling eyes.) LOL
I have used cotton gloves on every occasion, but my blunder was not (isolating) the chrome spru's well enough and the parts that came together left marks that to me were quite noticeable.
The chrome that was marked didn't respond well to the AK interactive paste/wax paint I used to attempt to cover up the removed attachment points, in fact, it was quite dull.
BUT, the chrome parts responded well to the future floor polish I got from the US of A, and that can help deminish the micro scratching I encountered.
Alclad I love. ! Seriously, I should have gone that track from the get go.
Donald, I am most rewarded by everyone's compliments and the sincerity of them, and that helps in not feeling so bad.
Spanjaard, No waiting in this line mate, as I have the new box opened and I am carefully seperating all the items and prepping it all for what I need to do.
In fact, I will post a 'blow by blow' account of what I am doing. Mainly for me to see how I altered my attitude and work ethic.
All is good.
Thank you ALL so much for being so keen and supportive.
That makes all the difference.
