Just managed to clear all the green paint of an original xbox jewel. The thing is now with all the nail polish remover and rubbing its gone all cloudy.

Anyone got any idea how to clean it up a bit ? Failing that where is the best place for 3rd party jewels in the UK ?

What I did is I got an attachment for my dremel, its like a buffing pad, its made out of a white fiber. I buffed it with only that and it came out perfect. Be careful and only use it on a low rpm. The first one I did, I put it on a higher rpm and it cut a little chunk out of the middle.
