try compound!

my dad used a machine for putting compound on cars.

my jewel was so cloudy, you could not see through it. Try it with the machine, if you have it (it did not work by hand with me)
it left my jewel super clear!

brasso might work even better, but i did not try that.

something with a "whitening" effect but you can use any king of polishing compound

I've been following your tutorial (it's great!), but I've run into a problem. I've removed my jewel by the freezing method, but I can't get the adhesive off very effectively. I popped it back into the freezer for a few minutes after I got it off the Xbox chassis and when it gets near room temperature, I put it back in the freezer for a few minutes. The only minor success I've had is prying the glue from the space above the engraved Xbox chrome.

How can I get the adhesive to peel off as easily as you described it?

EDIT: Also, what type/brand of paint do you typically use?

I feel really stupid now. I managed to get the adhesive off with a really small screwdriver and many trips to the freezer, but now in the process of sanding my jewel, I accidentally started sanding the wrong side. I caught myself before five seconds, but the scuffs are still there. I was using 1600 grit. Is there any way I can repair the scuff?

Also, is there anything special I need to do to water sand besides put water on the sandpaper?

I use the car paint (Motip)

You can try to buff the scratches but someone has also had luck with putting clear coat on a scuffed jewel.

Noting special about water sanding, the water just help remove the dust.

For the scratched jewel:
I have a polishing kit for a Dremel, but no Dremel (we do have a drill press, though). It has some polishing solution or something and an assortment of buffers/dohickys. Would that work?

Also, what specific kind of Motip paint did you use to get the black background on the jewel used in your green Xbox in the "Any Color Jewel" thread? I went to their website and was amazed at all of the choices.
