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.
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!
