Making her shiny ...

Postby SMHolmans on Thu May 26, 2022 2:24 pm

Hi all.
I have painted the bottom and sides of my PS hull, and wet sanded to a perfectly flat and glassy-smooth finish.
However, the gloss is now a bit dull.
Any ideas on how to restore the glossy, shiny look of the un-sanded gloss paint?
Thanks for any advice you can offer!

You probably need to get a buffer and buff it, like you would a freshly-painted car.
