yes, that's shiny. if you can find Mark's post in his thread, it'll tell you what he did to make his look like factory.
Found it on page 32
May I quote Mark:
"Iím not going to be able to get much further until my polishing is done so Iím finally ready to get everything clear coated. I had someone help me out with a lot of it. I still had to dial it back a bit with the gray Scotchbrite. Iím going to have it clear coated in two batches (engine covers and frame parts). .. "
Gray scotchbrite + clear coat. Wont get "gray scotchbrite" here in G but maybe something similar. I assume that is ultra fine 800 or even higher 1500?
Is this aplied wet?
