Subject: [CR]Sending for repaint (lug thinning prep)

I have decided I really like my mid 80's 3Rensho. The shifting is good, a nice mix of campy, Suntour parts etc. I absolutely hate the fade paint on it because it is impossible to touch up and ends up looking very dirty all the time. I am sending it out to my local painter but before I settle on which decals to use ... original or repro, I need to thin those lugs. (my 3rensho is lacking in that department). I feel I'm up to the task but I don't want to reinvent the wheel. What's the best way to go about it. ie.. file, sandpaper grit, methodology....?
