lookin good.

por 15 is an excellent product, ive used a lot of their stuff and although it expensive it gives you peace of mind.

when ive painted things in the past, most of the work(after the prep) is in the cutting of the paint after its been built up.

I'd recommend farecla G3 cutting compound if you can get it over there. i use it with a variable speed polishing mop, which is important because it stops the paste flying everywhere due to being too fast, and it doesnt heat up and burn the paint.
any day behind bars is better than a day at work......
