Today we truly washed the Cruiser for the first time since the panel conversion. I did one more session of wetsand with the 3000 grit paper on the passenger side, then hit it with M105, Ultimate compound and NXT wax. The picture is grainy cause its from my cell phone but this thing has never looked sweeter. It took me alot of practice to learn the products and get the most out of it, but I think I got it now.

I appreciate the thanks, but all I did was give you a few pointers. You're the crazy man who did this whole project on your own, without being a body and paint man!! Kudos to you, Chris!!

In the photos of the fresh paint in the other thread I thought I was seeing some orange peel so I had been biting my tongue. But these final photos look pretty damn good and I'm liking what I see. You may henceforth change your tag to "Panelman". Razz
