Beautiful work! I've found using Automotive Polishing compound works a treat when getting a smooth, reflective finish on spray paint.

 

I actually used it for my R1TK Bucket and it truly makes it look like a production piece. Just make sure to buff it really good.  

This is the brand I use: Meguiars Polishing Compound.

Thanks for the info! I have used some polish that I had on hand. What do you use when you buff it? I was thinking a microfiber towel by hand? Any better method?

Hey Aaron, long time no see. I have a couple of Derrek's buckets. Nice work on yours :jc_doublethumbup: 

Yeah, it's been a while. Just done spending some time in the Bluegrass Garrison's turf. I am glad to be back.

Just use a polish sponge to rub it in, then use any towel (I honestly prefer to use an old shirt) to buff it out. Just anything that has a good grip and won't slip on the surface.

Good to know. I will probably give it a go tomorrow.

Buffing. It is a lot like sanding. Ha. Well this is the stuff I picked up.

College has me tied down right now with the funds. I probably will build the F-11 blaster before I get armor.
