I should have taken pics of the sink as well. It's a top mount. I should probably duct tape off the sink edges just to be safe in case I hit with the diamonds.
 It's a tight area between the taps and faucet to the blacksplash and sink.

Have them remove the tap and faucets.
Do you polish the sink as well?
I find that polishing the sink makes your job look a whole lot better.

Thanks Jos. I'll stop by in the next week and mention about them removing the taps or I have to charge extra, I think it's usually 31/2" or 4" from the sink to the back splash. I usually try to make it 4"

On another note. Installed a white Persian Granite today. Disaster from the "get go" Chipped both pieces of granite on the install. I ended up faking it in by using the technique that you suggested JOS and they could not even tell the dif.  My buddy (the owner) could not believe it.  Where was the cam then. LOL

This is the type of stuff I like to hear.
sorry you did not have the camera, but now you know how simple it is to make a repair look like a natural part of stone.

Crap!!! Forgot to send in some pics!!Cry So much for that.
The guy in the shop told me today I'll never be able to get those scratches out of that counter. He says that the scratches will be stained and the marks will still be there.Shocked I told him I'll get them out.
 I'll start with the 50 and start feathering the other grits. I guess I should start where the scratches are and then work my way down the counter but I should not have to go all the way down tho just so long as not to make any dips where I start grinding. Buddy's kinda got me thinking now if I should tackle thisDeadDead

 Did you make that short vid yet Joh?

Have a good one. Mark
