This is no big deal to any of you body shop guy's (richard) but I thought I would post some how to photo's of color sanding and polishing the top deck of my Air. I kept the finish well waxed and polished but no matter how much wax or polish you apply your just making scratches shine. The finish was some what clouded because of all the random small scratches. No scratches that would stick out just tiny ones that would cloud the surface.
Here are some of the things you will need.

Makita Polisher- With a Polish pad and a foam pad. Flexable sanding block. 1000,1500,2000 grit sandpaper. Spray water bottle. Masking tape. Rubbing compound. Micro Fine polishing compond. Hand glaze. Wax. I use the small air polisher for the hard to get spots you dont need it but it makes it easy,

Then I used plastic to keep the interior clean

Then I used Green chemical tape because it is some what water proof. When you color sand the top you use water and if you use regular masking tape the water will reliese the tape.
This is the deck after it has been sanded with 1000 grit

1500 and 2000 grit

This is after rubbing compound and Micro fine polishing compound.

Im not finished yet but all reddy you can see a huge differance in the finish between the spots I have cut and polished and the unfinished spots. Ill post more photo's as I go along.
