OK. I thought I might have had the PSI too low to get good coverage, but I was trying to keep from getting the milky spots on the inside of the fins. Thanks for letting me run all of these ideas past you for a sanity check. This is why I come to the experts!!

I dip wet sandpaper into a container of water with just a drop of dawn detergent in to act as a lube-cleaner. Wet sand and rinse , wet sand and rinse. You will feel it get smooth. It is amazing how bad it looks after about 45 minutes in 200 degrees to dry off.

Sorry to go back to this part, but I just have to ask: what grit sandpaper are you using for this process?

Usually 400 grit. 1000 works well but it takes longer and gums up faster.
