Mirror Inlays

Has anyone installed mirrored inlays of any sort into their fretboard? Specifically from AIGuitars on fleabay?

I just want to know whether a) there's any need to sand the inlays to be flush with the neck (its an original wizard), and b) if sanding will take the mirror finish off the inlays?

Help, as always, greatly appreciated!

Yep--you have to sand them flush. Make sure you have a radius sanding block...
