Decided to clean and apply some sharkhide to my aluminum boat.
Used the acid wash to clean most of the gunk off, worked well but leaves some streaks and it is very white.
I thought I would use a 6" random orbit polisher-sander to make the finish even,
Well spent the day wearing out stuff and still not satisfied, I dont want to try to polish the whole thing, just even it up some.
I tried several types of scothbrite, I had some ultra fine brown, which seemed finer then the very fine blue, but the boat still has a mottled look to it.
The random orbit is a 6" Porter cable electric jobbie w/ a variable spped, unfortunately I didnt discover that untill the end of the day, I think the tool is about worn out from one day, not to mention myself...!
Is there a better process or tool to do this job?????
