Slow Day Project

Recommended Posts

It was slow at the plant today, so I had sometime to tackle some polishing that I've wanted to do since I started a couple months ago.  Diamond plate didn't appear to ever be touched and the tank is a mill finish...so it will never come to mirror shine without being properly cut and buffed. I tired my luck with the steps also. 

I was happy with the results with polish and rags.

Looks good. It's hard and a long slow job but when you'r done and look back at it it sure makes you feel good.

I once buffed and polished my river boat. It was a 20’ flat bottom aluminum rig. I had a 150hp evinrude that we suiped up. I raced it on the river and did well. It was a jet pump setup. Anyway one day I put it up on saw horses and commenced to polishing with mother’s and a high speed buffer. By the time I got the front 1/4 done I was wishing I had never started. About 3 Days later I was done. Everyone called it the silver bullet. It was a mirror finish. Pretty neat redneck and I’m sure your trucks owner will appreciate it. Normally guys like you will always have the “new” truck.
