Waiting for our Cyclo...

Today is over cast and you all know what that means...the cyclo polisher will be here next week. So for right now I shot Angel polishing with the black and decker random orbital sander polisher....and we found some good 'piled' sweatshirt material...also most looks and feels like stuffed animal skin, and we are useing G6 and S Nuvite polish. We got to looking closer and there is no clearcoat but you can see it down in corners and some under neath that we will strip out later...when the cyclo polisher comes in, we will get real serious, so for now we are having fun! (I may eat those words later)

You can stop by my place and practice all you want. I have a lot of Trade Wind to finish.

I have been using disposable vinyl gloves. I bought several hundred at Costco. I use them when I drain the tanks as well.

I don't think your hand is dirty ENOUGH!. Our Trade Wind is shiny but needs another go over. Tax refund may go for (need) new axles....or a Cyclo.

I keep a bar of Lava soap nearby for that 'manly' scrubbing...you know Lava soap is or kind of feels like a compound too....hmmmmm I wonder......surely not...for now all we do is throw away the oxidized rags and wash the cotton buffer pads, but I am waiting for the day we will gather the sweatshirt material over the cyclo and will create a sparkling trailer shell...then we'll get bored and go fix something else...next week the new window replacement will be here...that ought to be interesting.
