Bluenotes recipe to a great shine

Bluenotes recipe to a great shine

This is Joeglow’s post from reranch.com detailing his finishing method which works great on nitrocellulose.

After sanding to 2000 grit I buffed with 3M Finesse-it II Finishing Material Machine Polish, part #39003, with a buffer.

After that, I rubbed Perfect-it II Rubbing Compound, part #39002, by hand. This seemed to have a bit more abrasive than the machine polish, but it knocked down the small lines left from the buffing wheel nicely. The directions state to use with a buffer, but it worked well by hand. it also smoothed out the rough area on the edges that i never feel comfortable smoothing with sandpaper.

The finishing touch was 3M Professional Formula Imperial Hand Glaze, part #39007, which left a deep shine, and polished out any roughness. This stuff is GREAT! it says “show car finish” on it, and contains no wax or silicones, so it’s perfect for nitrocellulose.
