I just did mine. Started with 100 grit, then 150, 220 then on to wet sanding: 320,400,800,1000,1500,2000 then Mothers Mag and Alum. polish.

I used a Dremel sander (the flat flexible paper, not the drum) to get the corners of the indentation. Tedious job, but while I had the wheel off, I thought, why not? Go for it. Came out looking a little like beaten silver.
