This is correct in most cases - if its aluminum or steel I will actually do a light media blast and soak it in acetone for a short while after the degrease stage.

Any sanding I do is very light, just enough to scuff up the surface.

In the case of the glock frame (and most Magpul products) I simply rub it with a scotch bright pad, degrease it, and go - the texture of their polymer is very rough in its inherit design.

No that is fine, just enough to take the gloss out of the plastic is a good indicator.

Did you take the triger and slide lock ect off or just take it off really good? Picked up my 29 today.

No, the parts were physically removed.

I figured the more I looked at it. Behind the triger and under the slide lock would have been tough. Not to mention getting paint on the inside.
