okay so i got to thinkin today and i had a thought come up that id like to ask around about. i saw my old number plates for my KX in my garage that are pretty beat up and thought to myself "can i make these better?" so after some pondering i came up with this; what if i took some heavy grit sand paper and sanded all the big scratches out of the plate, then took fine grit and smoothed the thing out. after that, i would take them to the shop in school and take the acetylene torch (yes i said torch) and LIGHTLY go over the surface making quick strokes until i essentially would "melt" the first layer of plastic. after it dried im hoping to have a nice shine where the melted plastic formed like a clear coat type thing. so my question is; does this seem plausible? and has anyone tried anything similar?
