Wet sanding does work fine. But I don't do it under running water.... I put water on the sand paper/emery cloth.
I Never use a Q-tip
--- it will not come out smoooooth.( except on the battery slots) Use the Drip Method
and use gravity to let the CA drip around the edges.
Use thin CA as it is less viscous and will work best for the method we use to get the glue all the way around the edge of the chassis.
Holding the chassis up near eye level, drop a healthy bead of CA on the top corner of the chassis. Keep the chassis perpendicular to the ground at all times. Let the bead of glue run slowly down the length of the chassis. Roll the chassis so that gravity can do its best to pull the glue along. Add more glue just above the bead when needed (i.e. the glue is used up as it coats the edge of the chassis). Continue along until the entire chassis edge is coated. Figure 6 shows the bead of glue after it has ran down one side of the chassis. At this point we rotated the chassis so it would run down the front side. Try to rotate the chassis in a nice smooth gradual manner and try and keep the bead moving. If the bead runs off onto the front or back of the chassis just wipe it off with a damp cloth as soon as it runs off. Try and keep the chassis perpendicular to the ground and avoid any 'run off'.
