    Is there a thread here about refinishing Vaults and Cases? I came across 3 Vaults that I'd like to polish. A good friend recommends the "3 Cake Process".....I thought I saw before and after pictures here somewhere.....I have 2 Wire Vaults and an M-Frame Vault.

    Go on Youtube tons of vids on the site. Easier to watch than to have someone explain it to you

    3 cake is progressively finer compounds, depending on the finish to start, you'll get better results if you sand first then use the compounds to polish and shine.

    Depends on the level of polishing needed. If just hit my vaults with Cape Cod cloths they look awesome
