    Nice work Joe.

    Can't say I've had the luxury of working with Kirinite. Do you cotton wheel buff it to finish or use a plastic polish?

    I have used Acrylester and it takes a great shine with Meguiar's Scratch-X, a clean cotton rag and a little elbow grease.

    Kirinite is tough to work with. Sharp belts and quick movements are key. I then buff it up in the usual fashion with a cotton buffer. Again not spending too much time in one area.
