Re: Painting Question, if I may?

In case anyone is interested, you can buff/wax 3 year old alkyd enamel paint.

I first wet sanded with 600 grit and then high speed buffed with 3M Restorer and Wax Step 1. I probably could have done a better job if I would have started with 400 grit and stepped up to 1200 and then buffed with the 3M. But, I wanted to do it fast and I am planning on repainting next haul out anyway.

One thing I did do, is paint the white boot strip and bottom first before applying the wax.
