    So yeah, not a lot to show today except really filthy carbonated hands. OK, OK, I know you are now thinking of champers, beer and such. I am talking about black carbon ...

    Let the movie begin ...
















    And that was three hours of work. Then onto polishing on the buffing wheel.

    First buffing with the white compund, Aluminium Oxide





    Then a final buff with the green compound. No, I cannot remember what the heck it is.






    And that was four hours.

    Onto masking the wheel out for painting.







    Then onto slide hammering the masking tape to get the edges done.









    And a final wrap with some cheap masking tape to protect the edge. Wonderful carbonated hands ... I think when I go and do domestic house cleaning tonight it will clean my hands as well ...





    Tomorrow, the weather should be good and I can finally spray. I will also do a video of the second wheel's cleaning. Till then, happy
    I have to say: Bliksem. Sorry.
    After finishing you probably wouldn't want to use it. It will look like a show piece.

    Brilliant!

    Works for me, the search for "excellence".
    It would work in it's un-polished state, but you turned it into a thing of beauty.

    If I squint my eyes and scroll the whole series of photos real quick, you can actually see the wheel sort of keeping still, become shinier all the time, the sandpaper grade flicking over from coarse to fine, and BOOM, in the end, the wheel is masked with a final rush of speed. Well done Walt! (Disney) ;0
