1500 grit polished surface ..
« on: November 30, 2015, 08:03:51 AM »
I've been reading thru the posts on this forum on how to recreate the surface .....

I have 2 simple solutions ....
1.) fresh 1500 siaair pad and Storm reacta-shine over top

or

2.) use a wet, worn 4000 pad on spinner for about 1 minute a side.

They both give me what looks like the factory surface ..... any thoughts?

I found a .PDF file from Storm that says how to recreate the 1500 polish surface.  You need the Step 2 compound.  I followed the instructions with my spinner as was able to replicate the finish.  I have a new iq tour 30 that is straight out of the box.  Using that ball as the benchmark I was able to nail it on my Hyroad and Punch Out

Isn't that what I said quite awhile ago????

*****I've played around with finding the right combination to bring back the 1500+polish surface, especially on my favorites like the Virtual Energy and Anarchy.  I've tried everything under the sun and have finally come to what I feel gets me as close to factory as I can get, reaction wise.  Depending on wear, but I generally start with 1000 on 6 sides, 3000 on 6 sides, then Storm Step 2 on top.

Unless you have a ball scanner, You'll never know what surface actually came on a ball from the factory or what surface you actually have on it after sanding & polishing it yourself.

The main thing is don't worry about trying to match the factory surface (unless you have scanner and can keep adjusting it until it match's up).

Try to match the reaction, By using whatever steps (regardless of what they are), that gives you a surface that gives you the reaction you want.

Adjust cover to achieve proper reaction.
