So you did sided to side and up and down motions? That might be my issue as all we've done is circular motions.

Yea, side to side is how I did it. Circular is fine, but the side to side and changing directions makes it easier to tell when you have smoothed out the previous grit marks.

MCOCD is just an extension of my inherent OCD--it gives me an outlet that is productive!

There are a million ways to do this and lots of opinions so heres another one!! I've have really good luck with 3M product Marine High Gloss Gel Coat compound (on line or West Marine) and a high speed buffer with wool bonnet at 2K RPM or less - the product breaks down as you go right into a great finish- Check out 1998 205 redo in resto section and you'll see what I was able to accomplish- I did have to wet sand some parts but started with 800 and went right to the compound. Your scratches don't look all that deep from the pix - Agree that you might be better off not wet sanding. I was not able to get a good finish using the dual action polishers no matter what pad or compound I used (maybe due to inexperience) Worked my A## off until a friend who is a professional boat refinisher showed me the light. Chemical guys web site has some great finishing product stuff out there on their website. Patience is the best : something I'm not good at) but I was really happy with the result. Wingnut
