@dbrn32 am I ready for next step Or more sanding?


#471

Opps


#472

How coarse was sandpaper you were using? Pics can be a little misleading.


#473

At first but it scratched so I used 320 then 1500 wet.

Different angle. I can see the marks. almostalmost like a film still in spots.


#474

@dbrn32 more fine tuning without making low spots. I can see a difference. May take a little while but I’ll post in a bit


#475

Looks good to me so far @Angie. I didn’t even sand my aluminum and it was in worse shape than yours :wink:


#476

A little bit of wet/dry paper and a mist of water would polish it right up. Probably not neccessary, just clean it very good when done.


#477

Thanks @MattyBear. I can just about use this for a mirror!! Lol. No really Im going try and not embarrass myself.


#478

still has a cloudy look in places.


#479

Just keep cleaning until the cloudiness is gone. You’ll be good. It’ll take awhile, but eventually it’ll be clean. @Angie (did the same thing for mine)

What are you cleaning with? Try rubbing alcohol if you haven’t. Being shiny isn’t necessarily important, just needs to be flat and clean.


#481

Ok thanks. It’s getting there. Few more bowls and little bit of elbow grease.:wink:
