One More Zypher Video

This video had a couple of good bits of info in it. First it shows how to quickly strip the anodizing. You silver streak people can have shiny trailers too!

He also mentions the speed on his second cut. I dropped down and I am happy with the results.

Good video. He mentions RPM of the buffer for different combinations of wheels and compounds. It slipped my mind to mention to you about the surface feet per minute (sf/m) as mentioned in this polishing handout from Caswell. There is a formula for calculating it in the PDF.

Buffbook.pdf

If I recall correctly, Silver Streaks started anodizing in the latter part of the 60s. I'm not sure if they used alclad or not.

Anyway, have fun polishing!

Start with post #1 page one of this thread. It's like Wikipedia, only real. It will eventually take you through the whole process.
