Thread: Painting keelFin & Bulb

  1. #1

    Default Painting keelFin & Bulb

    I stripped my bulb to refinish it, and I was wondering how hot to treat the final clearcoat:

    Should I just leave it glossy-hard or sand it with some 200 or 400 paper. I even have some 12,000 grit paper, but saving that for other stuff.

    No sailing smiley? I have one...

    I sand everything front to back with 600 and then rubbing compound and then apply Starbrite polish.

    Wouldn't the rubbing compound undo the sanding effect?
