Hi everybody,

I recently got some Lee Oskar harmonic minor parts from Rockin' Ron and am
building up some harps.

Normally, I like to open up the coverplates of my harmonicas.   I do it
with a pair of pliers, and to be honest, when I am done it looks like I
gave it to a bunch of monkeys at the zoo and let them do it.  There are
plier marks everywhere and they look like crud.

I have seen some of you (online, etc.) with opened coverplates that look
professionally done, without the covers showing any tool scuffs or dents.
 Therefore, my questions are:

1.  does anyone do an awesome job with opening the covers on Lee Oskars?
my guess is that it mught be a little harder to do, since the covers have
some bend lines that are kind of crisp and pronounced; and

2.  if you do this kind of work, how much would it cost me to have you do
it (per harp?)
