Polishing clear resin? Tip?

Recommended Posts

Working on my Fisher AD-5W.  I discovered that the rear portholes do not fit the curvature of the hatch.  Had to file, sand and polish to the curvature.  Last wet sand was with 2000 grit.  I then tried my usual polish and it still was a bit hazy.  Tried toothpaste, still the same.  Other than applying some Future after plane is painted, anyone got tips for polishing resin to a glossy finish?

Novus Plastic Polish, It's been around for years it was  first used for repairing pin ball machines. I have used it many times to get parts for clear casting "clear"

It's a long transition from 2000 grit to fine polish.  I would suggest finding some 4000, 6000, and 8000 grit micromesh before using a polishing compound.
