Hi everyone
I have been collecting screen shots of Newell Coaches as I was researching before and while buying my own coach
I loaded them onto my gallery page under the heading / label Newell Pictures
Trust it is acceptable and it provides a one stop place to see how unbelievably diverse the paint jobs on each coach can be.
To navigate there click on the “gallery” tab at the top.

Don't laugh.

A home made 50/50 mixture of 3M 33039 Perfect It Finishing Polish and Nu Finish wax buffed with a long throw orbital buffer. You can find the 3M stuff on line or at an Auto paint store. The Nu Finish comes in an orange bottle and avail at any Walmart.

I found that polish alone didn't last very long. I found that the Nu Finish lasts a long time, but doesn't polish. I am too lazy to buff it twice, so I experiemented with combining a polish and a wax.

The real key is the long throw orbital buffer, and don't use too much of the mixture.

@rheavn is the detail guy, who has a hole bag of tricks.

Richard: which buffer do you use please? I have a Festool RO125 that I use on the cars and it works nicely (but pricey), I use it for wood working also :-) - I also have a Griots Garage 3” that works well - not sure about the throw on either one of them …

I have a bunch of orbital buffers, including the Griots. But, when I first used a long throw orbital I was blown away by the improvement. Mine is made by Adams, but Griot has switched to long throw now. Long throw means the size of the orbit is much larger, which translates into more buffing action. Not as aggressive as a pure rotary, but more aggressive than the original orbitals.
