Use this polishing kit to smooth the
"orange peel" surface of a rough paint job, or
put a mirror finish on good paint (see additional
note below). Works on all painted
surfaces, varnished wood, and bare plastics
(even clear parts). It is also invaluable for
creating varied finishes on raw metal parts,
ranging anywhere from a dull cast finish to a
This is the polishing system I
use on all of my models. It does take some
patience and time, but you will be amazed at
the difference between the "shiny"* paint job
you used to be happy with and the new mirror
smooth finish achieved with this kit.
Each polishing kit includes 6 sheets of cushioned
abrasive cloths in 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000,
6000, and 8000 grits, a soft foam sanding
block, a bottle of polish, and a soft
flannel polishing cloth.
( The Final
Detail Model Wax is not
included in the polishing kit; it is
available separately below.)
note: "Shiny" paint can be achieved with
or without polishing, especially if clear
coated. The shine is the result of the paint
drying properly, and means the microscopic top
surface of the paint is reflecting light well.
If you look at the reflections in that shiny
paint, however, you will almost always notice
they are wavy and distorted. This is because
the overall surface of the paint is not
smooth. Proper body prep can help avoid this
wavy surface, but all the top automotive
restoration shops sand and polish their paint
after it has dried to achieve a
concours quality finish, and your models will
look best when finished this way as well.
