Done, sort of. On to the bottom of the upper splash rails while its inverted. I might hit it again this time with the buffer, a wool bonnet and some old fashioned gritty rubbing compound to see if I can even the look out.
It never actually hit saltwater. The guy was too poor to ever run it. Was walled up in an artists compound for 10 years with a 55 chevy hard top that was in terrible shape and a weird shortened 73 charger as part of an instillation art piece. It is all from salt air and dew being 3 miles from the coast. Nothing inside, top side or outside above the bottom splash rails where rain washed it.
Not too hard to get it off and it's not deep at all. Flap wheel followed by a nylon wire wheel on a drill followed by napa aluminum bright. Whole bottom should take about 6 or 7 hours.
