The red boat..
The red Imron boat was actually done with 3M rubbing compound BUT I did NOT use a compound grade pad. I used a polishing grade foam pad and it was buffed wet and at speeds no greater than 1500 rpm. I followed up the 3M product with Presta Chroma 1500 polish and a Presta specific pad for Chroma 1500. I would have used Presta Ultra Cutting Creme as my starting point but I was out..
Imron will buff out like a traditional paint but do be very careful. If you're an amateur DO NOT use a rubbing compound on Imron, ,as I did, or you'll get in trouble...
