The first step in the overall polishing process is to thoroughly clean the airplane to remove all traces of oil, dirt and old polish residue. This is done with mineral spirits and microfiber towels. After completing that step, I pulled the Spartan out of hangar to examine the results. Prior to returning it to the hangar, I took a few pictures that have been combined into the following video. Once the actual polishing is complete, the airplane will once again be ready for the flying and show season.
Here are some pictures taken after the initial Spring polishing was finished.
