I just thought I would start a thread to let people know how easy disc cleaning actually is.
Its easy, the discs, 99% of the time work perfectly, reading full speed all the way. No random slowdown like when it is scratched.
And finally if you do the job properly, the end product is a disc that looks fabulously clean, and it is almost or really hard to even tell it has ever been cleaned/scratched.
Its easy once you know how, and have had a few goes at doing it.
I would like to share my wealth of knowledge when it comes to this matter, so if anyone is interested let me know, and I will post the relevant info you would need to do disc cleaning with near perfect results.
The main hardware you need is a Drill (DIY), buffing pads (Car Shop) and a couple of different polishes.
And once you have mastered it, it only takes about 10 minutes to do one disc from start to finish, and most of the work is done by the drill.
The best polish for the job, is Novus Plastic Polish 2, and also a clear shoe polish, which is very cheep, the Novus2 is a bit dear but lasts a very long time. I'm on my second bottle still.
The SPICE must flow.
