Yea the D80 was rough from the factory so i ended up spending a fair bit of time on it, i used some cut and polish at the the start with a rotary tool and then i finished it of by hand with Mothers metal polish. I chose cut and polish because some of the knurling had burrs and was fairly rough it would be to hard to sand the burrs on the knurling.

Something like this BLF A6 i sanded down with a high grit sandpaper then polished with Mothers metal polish.

Got my Frog and Nano Pro from Neals Gadgets.

The Nano Pro is indeed much brighter than the original Nano. I had the original Nano in copper.
