Kevin, that looks fabulous. Unless I can get mine done soon, I'll be embarrassed to camp next to you. You put me to shame now!

By 25 hours I mean ACTUALLY working on the compounding...not the time from when I walk out the door work, take a break, clean up, and walk back in the door. If I added all that up that would change the number considerably. You also have to know that my clearcoat was almost flawless so I didn't have any oxidization. I also have a 0-1500 RPM Compounder and have found that if you go at a very low speed with a good bit of pressure you get great results.

Great job, so the 25 hours is the time that the compounding pad was on the trailer..............
