Subject: RE: [motm] module panel separation moog-like alum stuff?

You could set a disc sander to an angle, like 60 degrees, and grind away the
paint on the panel edges and at the same time put a slight, uniform forward
bevel on the module. This would help expose more of the edges (simply
sanding the edge straight, I don't think you'd see anything...I imagine it
would just look crappy on the seam between modules).

If you want to actually remove 3/32" of paint in from the sides on the panel
∗front∗, yeeeeesh! That sounds real dangerous to me. Masking tape and Zip
Strip? I think you'd compromise the integrity of the paint job. You'd then
have to seal the panels in polyurethane or something.

It gets to the point where you have to ask yourself, "Do I ∗really∗ want
those lines...?"

Why not figure out a way to cleanly and uniformly file down the edges down
to beneath the paint? I can't imagine it would be too difficult. Are there
problems with this/considerations of which I'm ignorant? (O.k., I know I'm
ignorant in many respects, so keep your comments to this situation ;))
