    Yup! Yesterday clearcoated sides and bottom. Great day to paint , no crap in the air. Today Wet sand with 1500 wet and dry paper and then 2500 wet and dry . Then buffed with a HD buffer and heavy compound then mild . Here is the end result , Mirror finish no dust no bugs no fisheyes just perfect conditions, and yes what you see is all reflections of everything around the boatIM002848.jpgIM002849.jpg Next, Chrome gunwale and detail console. Be back soon!

    Amazing work. If I had even half of your talent, I would look for a displacement hull and start making a Nordhavn 55.
