Do you think this kit could be used for other things? Maybe something like this - http://www.mini-itx.com/projects/bantampc/ ? Or would you need a lot more sand paper for something like that.

The contents of my kit would be perfectly appropriate for such a project.  However, you would not need to go nearly as high on grit level.  I think the higher grits in this application would be pure overkill and the elbow grease involved would not be fun to be a part of.

Also, you wouldn't need a "glass" kit but I would suggest two plain kits.
If anyone was truly interested, I would be glad to substitute and swap out some of the 1200/1500/200 grit sandpaper for extra 400/600/800/1000 as you desired.  Basically, I'd just work up a special bulk kit and provide a one-time or individual pricing.

New premium kit coming out next week...here's a bit of eye candy.  Yes, the sandpaper really IS that color!  The new kit will be packaged with the standard stuff plus a tube of Arctic Silver Ceramique to use as the final lapping compound.  The black silicon carbide sheet is included int he picture for reference only.

If anyone is interested, I can explain why it is better.

I can tell you why its better - its pretty!  Also, it appears that it would be easier to figure out what order to do things in, since you can easily tell which colors are which.

I like the new colors, keep up the good work!

Thanks for the encouragement!   I have finalized the kit contents and started selling them.  Here's a pic...

I have been lapping for a while on 2 blocks. the first one as soon as I hit 2000, every thing become foggy and I have to go back to 1500 for the shine.
Another thing is that I can't seem to get the center on one of my blocks. Any tips?

If you can't hit the center, it means your edges are still raised higher than the middle.  Therefore, you must go back to a lower grit and sand it down until the edges are lowered.  Don't go on to a higher grit until the middle can be sanded.  Once you hit the middle w/ a certain grit, move on to the next grit.
