After the blast we have the polish…




#2

Nice!! Your work sure is getting better and better!


#3

Question, when doing a polish, do you need to use 800 grit sandpaper?

Or can you go from 600 to 1500?

Thanks.


#4

People are gonna say no way but this was done with 320 grit and dry. Tried something new and I am digging it.


#5

Only 320?

That how high you went?

So do you think it is okay if I go from 600 to 1500?


#6

For me I don’t really mess with anything over 800. When your spinning it and wet sanding the paper is just so thin it is more hassle than good.

The 320 I was using is after a wet sand to even things out. May sound odd to go from 800 wet to 320 dry but the 320 is not paper. Not a compound either. :wink:

Well, I tried to polish my Genesis, not soo good. :-\

Well maybe it is okay…


#8

It looks satined. I’m not going to say anything bad about that. Satin is another method used to make the surface more grindable. You aren’t going to get a mirror finish though.


#9

Well, it doesn’t grind well. :stuck_out_tongue:

Maybe I should try again?

I don’t know what I did to it. :-\



#10

It looks, liney.


#11

Did you use a polishing compound?


#12

I’d bet some compound would bring that right up.


#13

What type of compound should I use mothers?

Brasso? Or is that not a compound. :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

I recommend Mothers but Brasso will work too.


#15

Simichrome or Mother’s
