End of Sanding

Filed under: The R2 Project — jasony @ 7:55 pm

Finally finished sanding the frame pieces! I took the four curved front pieces and sanded them up to 3000 grit (wet-sanded). It took almost three hours. Ugh. I’m so glad to be done with that.

I still have about six to ten hours of polishing with the industrial buffer (and four more grits of rouge followed by aluminum polish and then billet polish) but the really nasty job is done. When I finished I took off my N95 mask and it was covered in powdered aluminum. So glad I wore that thing.

Anodizing is getting closer. I’ll hopefully be able to take it to the anodizer in a few weeks.
