    I used 400 then 800 and finished with a lite sanding of 1200 grit. Bought a set of polishing buffer wheels and bars of polish in a kit off ebay for $92.00 bucks and a cheap polisher from Harbor Freight for $50.00 bucks.
    Time to sand roughly 3.5 hrs per tank, time to polish 2 hrs per tank. I have plenty of polish and buffer wheels are in good shape to be able to polish some other things too. Polisher speed 3,500 rpm.

    Hopefully the cab and related parts are about done, I have a pile of new parts to install. Final color is a light charcoal silver with black fenders.

    Thanks Dave, the emblem was a cheap way to keep from spending 300 for a knock-off emblem. And the style of letters look better to me anyway. Plus that emblem came from the 1960.
