Recent Dome Pics



Here's where I stand as far as getting the dome together.
All panels are cut and ready to silicone the domes together.
My nerves will be shot by time I get the 2 domes meshed, But it's
progress.
I've take alot of advice from Victor, He's been alot of help on this project!!!
So, after I clean the inner/outter areas, I'll have 1 dome instead of 2 domes.
I noticed the pics make some areas look jagged, But they're not.

WOW!!!!!!! How did you get your dome sooooo shiny? Very nice!!!!! But the question still stands!!!!!! LOL...Did you use any top-coat or varnish after sanding? It really looks incredible!!!!!

After all the sanding I used Mothers Mag polish and keep working at the shine until I got what I was after.
The mirror look is different and kinda stands out in a crowd.
All I do now is polish it with the Black magic polish and maybe every 3 months hit it with the Mother's again. It's not hard to keep shiney with the polish on it.

Thats great!!! It looks like the way R2 was in "Empire", super-shiny!!!! It's funny you mentioned the Mthers polish, that was recommended to me by Keith Henry because his was really shiny as well!!! Great job bud!!!
