Awesome! It looks really great!

OT.

Did you see the 70 Opel GT on 'Pinks All Out'? It about won it all.

I did, and it was a fellow Opeler on the GT site: http://www.opelgt.com/forums/opels-media/24791-pinks-all-out-my-opel-gt-take-look.html

Just an update on the tools I used for polishing.

Here is the buffer I use: http://www.harborfreight.com/7-inch-variable-speed-polisher-sander-92623.html



It has a velcro pad holder that holds the polishing foam. I use the one that comes with it for the initial rubbing compound. I used Turtle wax rubbing compound.

This is the polishing pad: http://www.harborfreight.com/9-inch-foam-buffing-pad-91235.html



Use this one to apply the MeGuires Ultra compound.

The buffing pad is identical, except it is black. I don't see it on the site, but it is at the store. I just bought another one on Thursday.

Hope that helped.

just wondering what brand of paint and primer did you used and how long did you wait between coats and before sanding?
Car looks great!
