Last project post for the day.
This really was a project. Obtaining a glossy finish like this is no easy task. The finish was accomplished by sanding to a very high grit (12,000 Micro Mesh), then sealing, then many coats of water based lacquer. When cured, I wet sanded it to 1500 grit, then buffed it out on high speed wheels with tripoli, white diamond. Carnuba wax is usually the 3rd buffing compound but it smears up glossy work. Hand polishing with Meguir’s “Deep crystal” polish is the last step.
