Nice work, but you missed the last step.........borrow the wife's toothbrush to clean out the HIN.

That looks great. I had a similar level of oxidation on the back of mine. I just finished patching some gelcoat imperfections and wetsanding it yesterday. I'm hoping for decent weather tomorrow, so I can get to work with the buffer.

Finally got the boat buffed and polished. Now I just need to get some new decals and wax it.

I wetsanded the transom with 600, 1000, 1500, and 2000, then used a makita wool pad and 3m perfect it rubbing compound, then used a 3m perfect it ultrafine foam pad with 3m finesse it finishing compound. I used a neiko ct6101 for the buffing and polishing.

I wasn't sure if a 3m wool pad would fit, so I ordered a makita one and used it. It worked but left wool all over the place. If I had to do it again, I would order a 3m wool pad. I'm pretty sure it would have fit.

I've ordered the domed mastercraft logo graphics for the side and transom in black with a red outline.
