Sanding and Buffing
Done some work on the dash on Friday, spoke to GD as the wiring loom came with no diagram or ID tags, Email to follow, but it didn't land so I took another look at the Gel coat as I mentioned before. It buffed up well but having done quite a few spray jobs over the years I reckoned I could get it even better to match a pro spray job,
So out come the DA sander and the 1500 discs, It's hard to see in the pics but if you look you can see after a light sand when the shine is off the surface in places has the appearance of an orange skin. I sanded the area until it was dead flat, One pic shows the finished result :) looks like a mirror infact you cant see the car, just looks like a perfect reflection.
Will take some time to go over the whole car and buff it up but the end result will be worth it.
Looking ahead I need to decide on interior trim and carpets etc so I know what route I am going down , wheel size is another issue that's floating about at the moment.
