Hey what should I do about polishing the textured surface on my 1980 S&S? I am working on doing the sides but the top is textured. My boat is oxidized pretty bad. Is it ok to compound the textured area?

I used a 3M Roloc Bristle Disc followed by polishing compound and wax to bring mine back to life. The flexible fingers have small pieces of sand embedded to clean out the low areas and uniformly take away the oxidized gel.

Can't find any before pictures but mine was severely neglected. Note: the ding on the port bow has since been repaired.
