    One nice long run from the upper left corner of the engine bay opening
    It will easily sand out
    the rest of the parts will cut and buff just fine............

    first piece to be buffed out is the engine lid.....
    block sanded with 1000 and 1500.
    then D.A. with 1500,2000,3000.
    then wet sanded by hand in one direction with 3000 and 5000.
    then buffed with 3M #1 compound...
    pictures show surface prepared with 5000. And lid buffed with 3M #1 compound.

    D.A. = Dual Action. Can be a sander or buffer. The sanders usually run off a compressor although my DA Buffer is electric. In his case looks like a sander.

    Bob Reread your thread and you indicated that the jobber could not mix the light ivory in a single stage. Not a painter so I am probably asking a stupid question. Is it that "light ivory" cannot be made in single stage or the jobber (supplier?) could not create the color in single stage Dextron. I remember a thread where there was some controversy about getting light ivory correct and ultimate conclusion there was to use Lesonal paint I think. Just wondering about your reasoning as to choice. When Soterik recently sold his red Targa I think it was done in single stage red Dextron. Any indication from your jobber why light ivory such a problem. thanks for answer to uneducated question.

    regulations for the area limited the jobber
    plus, i was very specific about getting the 6804 light ivory correct color formula.
    so, ultimately it was the PPG librarian that had the correct formula, and it could only be made in the base coat clear coat. Waterborne base,Deltron clear coat
