|Where do you guys get your buffer and supplies. I started at Home Depot but only found grinders, which I guess it the same thing, but very little buffing supplies? I just finished up with some 2000 wet sanding on a few scratches now need to move on the 3M Finesse-It and then the Marine Color/Gloss Restorer, followed by a good waxing. |
Do you order online? Any recommendations on a buffer and what supplies I would need to complete this job?
|I ran across this info and saved it to send to a friend that bought a boat with a faded gel coat. There is good info spread out if you feel like reading through it. |
|Napa auto parts stores has a nice selection.|
|Cooper, I see that you are in Dallas, TX and so am I. |
I would take a look at 3m perfect 3000 rubbing compound (3m 06060) to remove those 2000 grit scratches. I would use a wool pad to remove the scratches.
You are going to have to work very hard with the finesse-it to remove those scratches. After the 3m perfect 3000 you can decide if you want to use the finesse it. IF you do, switch over to a foam pad. I did not have to when I did mine this summer.
Look up English Color here is Dallas. They can get you what you need (Compound, Polish, Backing plate and pads)
Check out Northern Tool, I think they have a couple of stores in DFW. I picked up a polisher for under $40 and it works great.
