Acrylic buffing 😞 I'm doing something wrong please advise

Iíve only ever seen it done this way, mind you itís far easier when there is nothing in your tank.

Please donít try this with your electric angle grinder, these guys use air powered grinders for inside the tank as they get wet. I would have to assume the water acts as both a lubricant and a coolant.

I would assume the bidding of any acrylic would be the same in principle, make sure your using compound, staff with a courser grid and work your way up slowly to fine grit and then finally a polish, and donít leave the grinder in one spot; always keep the grinder moving.
