Is that after sanding or before?

I used a little trick I am very proud of

to keep my sandpaper wet at all times, I used a "water spigot" designed for those old "swamp cooler fans" with an outlet valve for a 1/4 inch poly tubing....

left the red handle closed, and opened the 1/4 inch valve and controlled the flow of water to a small stream
I held it over my paper and sanded in one direction at all times

no dipping into the bucket for me

this image does not have the 1/4 valve installed

I am using a spray bottle with soap in it.

If that is before I would not have sanded. Just a good compounding followed by a polish would bring that back.

Well I already sanded one side because it was so rough. I didnt sand it very much. Just enough to smooth it out some. It was pretty rought. I just compounded that side as well and it looks good. I can live with it. I know im not going to get the color i see under the platform or under the bow. But this is going to look good I hope. That Finesse it II is high dollar stuff by the way. I am following your steps and thanks for the help. I will post pics as I progress.

Don't be afraid to compound it multiple times. If it is bad compound twice. Then polish.

Here is after 2 passes with the compound. I see a huge difference. I am guessing the Finesse it will bring it out even more and some wax.
