I’m starting the process of polishing the hull on my 1959 Sea King. Many videos advocate sanding with 320 and then buffing with wheel and brown bar. Is it necessary to start with the sand paper? What’s your opinion?
You can polish scratched and gouged aluminum with a wheel. The sanding is to smooth out the scratches and gouges so it looks more like a mirror and less like a polished turd. Lol.
I certainly appreciate the time and effort people put in to get and keep a mirror like finish. Their boats look gorgous!
Myself, relegated to just keep it clean.
