I used a 14 volt cordless so it wasn't really fast . I have a oribital buffer too after looking at your buffer thread I see what you mean. Lots of good information there . Maybe with the lower rpms the ball works different the one advantage to the ball is you have 2 ways to use it . Straight on sort of like a regular buffer and on it's side so it's more like a straight line .

My uncle does something with corn starch and waxing . Never tried it but his black truck looks flawless even after 8 years . Thank you for the links the orbital is around here somewhere I'll follow your steps and see how good I can do it. Thanks a lot

thats a trick us old farts used on black lacquer paint jobs - buff it out with dry corn starch. No residue, and it will make it look like glass.
Plus if you breathe it, you blow out muffins


Only did it by hand.. no idea what a machine would do

Now if just plain muffins ain't your thing snort some blue berries before sniffing the corn starch. Your car will look great and your muffins will be the hit of the local cruise night! I'll get some starch seriously and mess with it on the paint. Thats why I like this forum good advice with a dose of laughs too Smile

Well finally got out and had a good road test. The ride is better than expected it's fast and didn't flip over when I took a street corner at 35 mph. The brakes need to be rebled and I found a bad ground on the cooling fan but the fan is fixed.

Lots of that "What the hell was that" looks most of the people remember the clown cars too. Since the trike is not garage kept we get folks stopping in the street to look. A few have pulled in and knocked on the door to get permission to look at it up close. Lots of fun we have security cams on the house so I don't worry much about someone messing it up.

It has an electric reverse on it . It's pretty slow so it's a good idea to avoid parking in a place where you would need it. Pushing it is no problem it's about as hard to push as a loaded shopping cart. When I pull in at home there is a wheeled cart that goes under the back wheel and just spin it around facing out.

My paint is bubbling and flaking off in spots hair pull . I suspect the tarps that covered it over the winter . Something on them or in them buggered the paint and softened it . So watch out with the plastic tarps I was careful to make sure they were clean .

Other than that the trike is good been driving it and getting plenty of shocked looks .

Sorry to hear that about your paint, I would almost think that something got on the surface before the paint went on.

I wipe down my car with window cleaner to get anything that might be oily, then wipe down with MS

It crossed my mind but it was good till the tarps.
Windex wipe down was done but not MS so that
could have been it.

I'll see what happen it might get redone using the same
stuff you used or a proffesional paint job.

Your car looks beautiful the best I've seen so far!
Thanks for the advice I appreciate it
