Spent the better part of the day on the G man, now that its running good and scarring the hell outa everybody LOL, its time to put the shine on. Got the deck pretty good and a good start on one side.
It has a lot of very deep dock scar's so it won't be getting the super shine just a usable gleam.

Turns out the shiny thing may not have been a great idea. The water around here is hard as nails and trying to keep it clean and shiny is a lot of work. I need to carry some lime away or vinegar with me, yyuk.

I started (very lightly) with 80 on a DA then went to 180 then to 320 then 600 wet 1200 wet 1500wet then buffed with heavy cut compound on wool pads on my machine buffer. I had blisters on my hands by the time I was done it was pretty rough to start with.
