My r3t with 30000 mi came with some rough looking lower legs. Im wondering what to do short of replacing. I can live with it for now. Im leaning towards using finer, and finer wet sanding. Im open to ideas tho.

If you mean fork legs, I wondered the same,if fine sandpaper would make it better or worse. I'm gonna let you be the guinea pig. 🤔

I knew the title would get attention, but this would be the wrong forum 4 that.

I would tray a buffer pad on a drill will the red polishing paste then get another bad and do the white past . But if the red polishing past doesnt remove the scratches then I would do wet sand paper and then the polishing past.
