There are lapping kits sold with all the sandpaper needed, plus a flat surface to lap on.

Check this site:
Easy PC Kits

They sell lapping kits with a little glass surface.

You don't necessary need a glass panel, just a flat surface, am I correct?

All you need is sandpaper ranging from grits, 400-1500. You can get them at automotive stores.

I got my lap kit from that site I put up, in my previous post. Goes up to 2500 grit. It's not necessary, but it's nice to have.

If I lap, I will go there.

What about water cooling heatsink? Do you lap that? Or does that not give any better performance?
