Good day no one like my polishing?

Well I said I was nervous about painting and it turns out I had reason. What I thought was good prep, well when that black went on holy smokes. The little bows and wows in the sheet metal and do you know there is 28 corners in the top front what was I thinking. I am still at it just started my 3rd can of paint LOL I am making progress OH and then a bloody fly landed right on the top tonight. I love nature but give me a break. Back at it tomorrow

This is even better, Thank you.

Thanks to -feerof- I picked up a different polish-buffing wheel and what a difference. Trying different screws, I like the robertson over philips.

Thanks feerof.

Been a while for this update. Have home and garden ready for winter, that needed to be done before playing.

I have found the mounting screws for front fan grill, and have finished making 5.25 bay cover, also made new side panels with flat edges, the rounded ones just did not want to fit easily. So heres the pictures :)

before and after with a finish to match the fan grill
