    A little bored on a Sunday afternoon so I thought I would hand polish my favourite locally South African made mech mod! The Paddy! I bought a stab woodblock from overseas and sent it to Paddy Vapes in JHB and he made me this beauty! There was enough wood for two so he made himself one as well. I absolutely love the magnetic fire button and the brass polishes up really well with Mothers Mag and Aluminium Polish!

    Hellfire Phantom Maintenance. I was lucky enough to be able to pick up 6 Phantoms and spent the afternoon cleaning, polishing and giving the wood some love. The stainless-steel parts got the Mothers Mag and Aluminium work over, the wood got Renaissance Wax.

    The nooks and crannies were cleaned with surgical spirits and Q-Tips. The 510s and positive posts were polished with Mothers and cleaned with surgical spirits.

    Here are 44 pictures of the progress!

    Some light maintenance and polishing for the Hellfire Phantom Brown. Nail buffing sponge first then the polishing cloth and 510 clean with Surgical Spirits. All ready for the juice to be added for tomorrow!

    They do look good for sure. When you polish, do you polish the glass and plastics or just the metal parts.

    @Stranger I polish both... it's easier that way and also removes any small scratches at the same time!
