Well I went ahead and did it. I'll post some pics later. I didn't have to take off much metal just enough to smooth it out. I used my dremel with a sanding cylinder to get the general shape and smoothed it out with some 400 grit sandpaper and then used a felt wheel with brasso polish to finish. It doesn't look half bad, I'm pretty proud of myself. I don't know when I will get a chance to try it out though. maybe tomorrow.
