was speaking to a bufty friend the other day and i mentioned i was not happy with the paint finish. its a track car way over a show car but he said you've gotta machine polisher....use it. but wet sand the roof (main bit i aint happy with) then compound and polish it.

well i did a section, then the roof. pics do not do it any justice but it looked like it was painted with a tar brush before, no shine etc at all....

after one pass

and another

and another then a polish

its not perfect but lots better and its the first time im ever wet sanded and used a rotary polisher

rest of cars gonna take ages, but doubt ill be sanding it lol
