Original Danger Zone
« on: July 28, 2003, 09:36:24 AM »
I have a question about this ball. Once you resurface it, how would you go about getting it back to the original box surface? Does anyone even know what the box surface is?

thanks

If you don't happen to have a Lustre King machine or don't trust its contents, Brunswick also originally recommended that you finish it off with orange automotive rubbing compound or an 800 grit bowling polish.

Here's an original PDF file for a Brunswick ball that has this info:

charlest,

With the 800 grit rubbing compound, is that after the shots in the lustre king or instead of the lustre king?

If it is instead of the lustre kind, then I should sand to 600 grit then 800 grit rubbing compound, correct?

600 grit wet sanding, followed by the (auto) rubbing compound smoothes the lines left by the 600 grit and puts a slight shine on the ball. I used to do this and it works out quite nicely. Regarding the 800 grit polish, I don't have any and never used it; not sure if it would smooth out the sanding lines, which would be mostly for looks.

A lot of this is mostly by feel. Stop when it looks good to you and write down where and how you go to where it is. Try it and see how you like it. The great thing about doing it yourself is that you do what you need (or want). The variety of adjustments can be infinite; so please write it down.

FYI Another product that does this is Ultimate's Quick Cut and Polish. It's intended to sand down grooves from when the driller routes off a plug and then polishes it all in one process. It works very well also.

Quick Cut and rubbing compound have heavy duty particles left over and should be removed with paper towel and water.
