Not Very Smooth Racing Bottom

Jeff: Thanks for your reply. I agree with what you say but am stuck with somewhat limited resources and need an objective way to spread them around. If the difference between orange peel(say 80-grit) and smooth underbodies amounts to more than 6-seconds per mile, perhaps the new jib could wait another year. My original use of the term ''orange peel'' probably wasn''t a good choice since as Max suggested we do use a smooth roller and tip it out but without any further sanding.
