    Yes I am gutted.

    After doing the cut and buff on the car I was so tired since it was really late when I got finished and I had been working on it all day I chose to get some sleep instead of cleaning the car off.
    Now I have little specks of buffing compound all over the car that don't like to come off very easy.
    I have used warm soapy water, soaked over them, washed and washed and they are stuck pretty good.

    Does anyone know what to use to get this stuff off easier??

    Note to self and everyone else, rubbing alcohol works wonders on taking off dried on buffing compound.

    At least you found something to take it off. Are you done with the cutting and buffing now?

    Almost, I have a spot or two on the roof to redo, passenger door, driver fender, trunk lid.
    Got the front spoiler on plus the chrome around the front and rear glass.
    getting closer and closer but slow.

    victor, I think I'm gonna have to come by and check out your progress. I'll be in Ponca City Dec. 10-11. My sister-in-law getting hitched!! LOL
    At your rate, you will likely be done come Dec...

    So there is some light at the end of the tunnel. When do you see it being on the road ? Or is it going to be a trailer queen?

    LOL, well, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel, just exactly when it will be roadable, maybe two weeks or three.

    This weekend I have training so it will slow me down a little.

    So it will be ready just in time for the crappy weather to roll in. Never had to do the weekend warrior stuff myself, how do you like it?

    Yep, when I finally get close enough to start driving it it gets cold and wet:(

    The weekend warrior stuff is getting tougher every year I get older, that and the fact that I really want to finish this car.
