I use a Snap On buffer that I purchased 25 years ago. The b*tch is heavy, but does a tremendous job!!!

Go to full editor & preview, and click on the attachments button

Or pull from Photobucket or wherever you store pic and put the address in between the url buttons.
Thanks

These were both taken yesterday after I performed the third buffing step, but before waxing. I think she looks...AWESOME!

Thank WAYBOMB for the tutorial on pictures!!!!

Maybe the final wax coat you could use a da type poison polisher though



Waybomb.... I would appreciate you opinion on this

Kenny, that shine is awesome. Great job. I'm waiting for the warm(er) temps to start so I too can get to it. I have some wet sanding and polishing to do and I am installing 6 underwater lights. I am also installing another 4 underwater lights on a buddy's 355 in my Marina. I refuse to work outside when I'm uncomfortable.

That's what I bought, plus a half dozen wool pads, and a cheap pad cleaning tool. It's a handle with a toothed roller. Works great. Clean the pads in a 5 gallon bucket of simple green with a stiff scrub brush, rinse very well, and then hang up to dry overnight, and back at it in the am.

There's all kinds of resources and opinions on how to do it, what compounds and waxes, etc. I like 3m products. I finish it up with a non-wax polymer (MaryKate). Leaves no swirls and last all season.

But everybody has an opinion - do whatever works best for you.
Thanks
