    I had my Sunday bead blasted last year and now I want to polish her up to a nice shine. Anyone have any tips on a cost effective way of doing this? Will Mothers and a buffer wheel for a drill work?
    Thanks in advance

    FWIW.....

    I stripped the paint off of a Kona and used Mothers with a wheel and 2000 grit sandpaper

    Baby gleams!!

    Yeah I think if I had stripped it instead it would be easier but since it has been bead blasted it has a rougher texture now.

    You'd have to wetsand with at least 600grit and 1000 grit before youre ready for polish. Mothers works great.
