Oh wow, today I finished wetsanding the touchup areas on my fastback's floorpans and started on buffing. Of course, my minidisc buffer hasn't arrived yet, so I started the first stage by using my electric drill. That puppy gets heavy quickly. I managed to get about almost half the car done (two outer strips and one inner strip) before my arm gave out. I discovered that I can only buff right-handed. I can paint and wetsand fine left-handed, but forget buffing.

Some areas look gorgeous with just the initial compounding, and others look good. Fortunately, nothing looks bad so I'm a happy, if very tired and sore, camper. :lol:

I wonder how much fun it will be tomorrow with a champagne hangover? :crazy:

Laurie - not meaning to be an idiot here, but I thought the paint job on your car was done years ago? Just touching up something?

"Something Worse Than Wetsanding From Below"

But look at this way. Blue & Gold arm pits may come in style in `08 . :thumbup: ;) :p

Hmmm, and I have been griping about buffing the topside of my new paint job. I guess I will shut up and finish my work. Anyone who will buff the bottom side is far more committed than me!!!

On second thought--if you want some practice--why not come finish buffing my car?
