    Removal of seamlines

    Post by lazyoneeyez on Fri 02 Dec 2011, 9:03 am

    HI Guys,

    I would like to asked some questions.

    What cement do you guys use?
    I use Mr Cement S is it ok?
    Do u press the parts using your hand or using bulldog clips?
    I used my hands and the parts seems to have miss align is it because i press too hard as i was using my hand.

    Yes we use Mr Cement S, Mr Cement, and Mr Cement fine.

    Ehh when you press, press firmly not too hard.
    Some parts we can use clips to hold we use.

    I think you pressed too hard bah, or you used a clip that's too strong. Keep making sure that the parts are aligned when you're holding them together cos during the first few seconds the parts can still slide around easily, once it has dried a bit it'll most likely stay in place. Smile

    sorry for digging old threads.

    I would like to know how to remove hard to reach seamlines?

    No matter how I fold the sandpaper, I couldn't reach that seamlines.

    Are there other ways to reach these difficult seamlines or have smaller DIY sandpaper/pads/sticks?

    you can try to cut the sandpaper to a tiny size (depending on the area you want to sand) then use tweezers to fold, hold it & sand Smile

    You can use another method which uses plastic putty or powder+super glue, it is more controllable but of course you need to buy a tube of it or mix your own concoction respectively.

    Haven't really tried before, but what I do know is if u mix Johnson's baby powder with super glue, it is very good being an alternative putty.
