cyclo used INSIDE?

I've finished polishing my front interior endcap & want to get rid of the swirls left by compounding. I have a cyclo polisher, but don't think it will go too well with the interior curvature (is that a word?)...well, you know what I mean. Anyone use it on their endcaps to get rid of swirls after polishing INSIDE? Or maybe have a different approach?

...I think it's actually harder to polish the curvature of the outside, (yes it's a word)
And if you have the arms strength to control your cyclo. And you have good enough leverage to move well from left and right angles...then you ought to go that route.
Hey! show some pictures!..

Becky...it will work OK....just work with the curvature. The problem will be your arms....get the Boys back in there. Or you will look like Popeye when your done.....all muscle.

Oh, believe me, I have been building the muscles there! This endcap has taken me more time than I care to add up! It's definitely harder work than the exterior endcap (which I've done a few times on my other trailers). I guess I'll give it a whirl tomorrow (I got called off work ) I'll post pictures in my thread about the Bambi II: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f147...ler-75011.html

Thanks for the advise....hope it works!

Swirls gone...! I thought I'd put a pix here too, so if someone else wonders the same thing, they'll see the results;

It's beautiful! Looks like one light bulb in the middle would light up the whole trailer.
