Sanding & buffing
Well this sorta falls into what did I do to my Mach 1 today. . But in my case it was my 2 weeks off work. Started off my body shop buddy gave me no end of crap that since I "managed" to get such a good job done painting my car in my redneck paint booth that I needed to take it to the next level and do it justice by sanding & buffing my NEW paint??!! I said he was just plain crazy, but he won out twisting my arm and showing me the payoff on one he was finishing up. So like a fool I took my first 4-1/2 days off and ever so carefully started wet sanding the clearcoat, 1st with 1500 then 2000 and finally 2500. If I do say so myself while it isn't shiny yet. . . I can see when I do buff it that it will be way deeper of a shine. I will keep you posted. He also for whatever its worth recommended wizard products for buffing and after care, and from what I have seen from him using them , they are nothing short of amazing. I promise I will get pictures up but I have been busy sorting and cataloging them in order from start to finish. I will pick out a small assortment from beginning to end and if someone wants to see some of a particular piece of the project, just ask and I can post more on that specific piece. I then installed my electric exhaust cutouts and I must say they sound fabulous when opened up. Cant wait for this summer to pick on our local law enforcement folks a little with them. I then ponied up and ordered a set of AFD aluminum 4 bbl race heads and intake manifold and am having Dave Webb the owner do a stage 4 port job on them. He has been fantastic to deal with I might add. Cant hardly wait to get those here, maybe in time for the summer but I am not holding my breath. It's been along time since I could regularly drive it so the heads may have to wait until the fall. Anyway I'm back at work now so it will be a couple weeks before I can buff. More later.
Sounds like time consuming and tedious work, but well worth the effort. Of course we want to see some pictures!

Sounds good.

Looking forward to the pictures.
