Default Polish

well after giving the repairs a few months to settle I gave it a polish several hours of bulling not to thick and a final water bull while watching TV old habits die hard. After seeing the ones at the Museum nicely polished I weakened.

Thanks John
Just let it settle now but another bit of headdress of the bucket list and a bit of Lancer history saved.
