that turned out alot better than I thought it would. Acourse with your climate, its real suitable for painting and nightshading stuff. Here in KY, its so cold right now and the humidity changing back and forth constantly its really difficult to get some good coats without them cracking.

I cleared them back when I originally did the tails.

All I did was wet sand. Rubbing compound. Polishing compound then I waxed em just for good measure. But in the pic all you see is after I did the rubbing compound. The polish didn't make a huge difference but I figured why not
