Oooo Pretty

Just started working again on the dome.
I'm going the shine way. Like I said I'm not after a movie perfect R2.
I'm building him the way I like him.
It's kinda hard to get the dome to shine, But it's worth it.
When you get the dome from Ron, it has to be sanded down.
This will get rid of the lines around the dome.
I started with 120 paper, then 150, then 220, then 240.
Once I got this far, I started with 320 paper wet, then steel wool.
The shine is slowly getting better with Mothers Mag and Aluminum Polish.
Sorry the Pic is so dark, But I wanted the shine to show more than the dome itself.
