yyf 888x hitman mod?


#1

i have a few minor dings in my 888x, but not noticeable and they don’t bother me. I’ve been thinking of doing a hitman mod to it, to get rid of the dings, but mostly cause it looks cool. I’ve never done this before, so i just wanna make sure i do it right. I’m thinking i take my drill, put it in a vice grip, put half the yoyo with the axle on the drill, leave it spinning, and use 220 grit sandpaper on the rims. i will probably use metal polish afterwards, and it will be awesome. is this all i have to do? it seems simple enough. i don’t really need it mirror polished or super dull, but something in between. did any of u try this? is it a good idea? will i just screw up my yoyo? what are your thoughts?

I suppose you are talking about a satin job. You could do it the way you describe but I would recommend adding a higher grit sandpaper into the job. I would use a 200, 400, 600, then a 1000 grit or something like that. The grits would not have to be exact ::slight_smile: It isn’t necessary to fix the rims like this just because you dinged them, but if you are doing it for fun then go right ahead.  8)

Here is a good video that might help you:

Yeah. I still want it grindable, so i got some 400 grit. Im plannine on doing 150 first, then 220, than 400. Do u think this will be good? Or will i need to go higher?

0000 steel wool later does wonders.

K thanks ill see if i can get some. Im not sure what the finish wipl look like after 400 grit. Im definetly gonna polish it after just to see if it can still grind.

he said he wanted it to grind though. 0000 steel wool can almost polish a yoyo . 400 would be high enough.
