Just a bit of experimentation today. This was my first attempt at polishing and only spent about 45 minutes trying to figure it all out.

I think it came out pretty good for a first attempt. After doing it wrong for a bit it finally clicked and I started getting good results. Still trying to get a good setup for the grade S nuvite since I didn't want to spend the big bucks for the Cyclo polisher.

This was only 2 passes of F7, 1 C, and 1 S. On the plane I will likely do more F7 passes.

Most importantly I actually enjoy it so far.

Hahaha ya I probably shouldn't advertise that I enjoy it. Although maybe I'm still in the honey moon phase.

Okay, couldn't help myself, more play time!

This is 5 passes F7, 2 C, and 2 S. I don't think the second pass of C or S did anything extra though. I've got a few imperfections in it but I was also doing this on a dirty table where contaminants likely got in. Despite this I would be just tickled with this on the plane. I'm not looking for a 1 foot polish.

P.S. I'm man enough to show you the photos in direct sunlight. Anybody can do a perfect hangar polish!
