    I've never really seen an in depth guide, but there are tons of pics out there before and after. All you're really looking to do is smooth out the edges, and blend the outer TB to meet with the area around the blade as smoothly as possible. If you have a dremel or die grinder, that's all you really need. You can get flap wheels and wire wheels from several places. I got mine from http://www.bulletindustries.com/cata...p/cPath/82_140 . Here are a few before and after links for reference:

    thanks for the quick reply. I sent him an e-mail to see if he still does the work.
