    I agree. The contrasting black color gives a nice separation but in my book - more light equals more gooder.

    Wow! Two VERY dramatic changes.

    Glad to hear you okay though...

    Ha ha... seems like over time, detailers tend to own white and light colored cars...

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    I just ordered two new 3" polishers, one rotary and one random orbital.

    Since the shelf where I currently store my existing polishers isn't big enough to hold the new ones too, I decided to build a wall rack to store all of them.

    So today I built the brackets to hold my two existing polishers. These will be mounted to a piece of plywood which will then be attached to the wall. But before I can do that I have to wait for the new polishers to arrive and build the brackets for them. Then I can play around with the spacing and orientation before mounting the four brackets to the plywood and ultimately to the wall.

    Here's today's work...

    Update...

    I was able to do a little more work while I wait for the two new polishers to arrive. I got the plywood backing done and mounted to the wall. When I'm ready to mount the remaining brackets and paint it I can easily remove the plywood from the wall as I mounted it with a "french cleat" system. A little nudge upward and it disengages. I also mounted the bracket for the first polisher.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Cross post from a thread on here where I had asked some woodworking questions, but I’m proud of how it turned out so I thought I’d share here.

    Finished up a floating platform bed frame that I designed/built:





    (In case you're wondering - it'll live under a bed skirt, hence I didn't go out of my way to make the wood match the rest of the bedroom )

    Done except for paint.

    Also, still waiting on the 3-inch rotary which is back ordered until mid to late February... But I was able to build the bracket for the rotary as it has the same body dimensions as the random orbital (Griot's G3 and G8) so those two brackets are essentially identical with the only difference being the retaining mechanism which I will add once the polisher arrives.
