Hello everyone, and sorry if this is in the wrong section, or if I failed to find this information using the search function. I am a DIY guy. I recently bought some 1500 grit sand paper to restore the headlights on my car. Could I use this to give my raw brass Getzen Super Deluxe a scratched finish? I know the 3m Scotch-Brite pads are recommended but I have no idea what grit is recommended or how it compares to 1500. Also, what sort of lacquer is suggested to cover afterwards? My body chemistry and raw brass tarnishes the horn at an alarming rate, even through turtle wax. Anyone have any luck with non-industrial stuff, or something you can find at a hardware store? Thanks.
