The pits are deep. Tom from Perfect Polish came over to take a look because I have been ordering compounds with him, and yes the pits are deep. NuviteF9 is not doing it and either is 3M Super Duty.
So the choices came down to:
1 wet sanding - I tried wet sanding over a square foot with 1000 and it did smooth out the pits. The color of the pits - little dark grey spots- remain. And the place that I sanded is pale and dull.
How do I know if I took off all the Alclad?
In the mean time I have been talking with car body shops that often use air compressors...which lead to the idea of using 1500
g with an air compressor so that I can limit the work on my good shoulder!
I do not want to cut the oxidation too much and remove the ALclad,which I am not sure what that would look like.
2) Pink and white emory bars may be better. Some say Black then brown then F9... What do you think? some say use a sisal wheel, others say use a grinding type buffer- not sure what those are.
But First...How do I know when sanding if the Alclad is OK.
(geez I wish there was a camp to learn this)
