Thanks to some help from Rexus I was able to pull this off using a buffer and some polishing compound (to say I'm thrilled would be putting it lightly):

Here you go GreenDean.

I worked each rail for 3-4 minutes, 3 dabs on the buffing pad. Then wiped down with a microfibre cloth - all per Rexus. As you can see worked great.

Used a Griots random orbital polisher with an orange buffing pad and this:

Scott, good job so far. Please invite Dave and me to your "Man Cave" when you are finished. I restored a GC 1 many years ago and I used a local Body and Fender shop for the paint job. I had them paint it black with an oil based lacquer which may not be available now in Cali due to emission standards. Lastly I have unused sets of pockets for GC 1,2s and 3s if you need some assuming it has a ball return system. All you need now is the accompanying original chairs with that were locked together with a drink and food holder. I saw one on AZBillards a few years ago. Very cool indeed. Keep it going my friend.

Thanks, Jerry! I will most certainly have you and Dave over once completed. I am not going the auto paint route but a very durable paint nevertheless. As you know, oil is hard to come by in CA nowadays. I'm using Sherwin Williams Emerald Urethane Enamel which the tout as a hybrid; low VOC, water clean up, dries as hard as oil. I can attest to that as my pedestals, runner, ball box and skirts all have a very hard finish which should be very durable. My painter has used this paint in high traffic areas and he reports it has held up nicely. I'm having difficulty laying down the blue on the aprons though so he will spray the final couple coats for me because after 4 attempts, I've run out of patience and simply want it down. It's rather annoying considering I got a great finish on the white pieces but the blue doesn't want to lay down smooth. Oh, well.

Thanks for the offer on the pockets but my table doesn't have ball return.

The other table my buddy (@pocket) got was missing the skirts but he was able to source a set however, a couple of the long pieces were missing the mounting tabs; most likely broken due to improper removal. I helped him out and recreated them using a template made from thin cardboard traced from one of my skirts. Once the template was properly positioned on the skirt(s), I sandwiched it between layers of JB Weld then finished it up with some Bondo putty. I think they came out good. I'm waiting for the mating pieces to drill the holes so he can use hardware or RKC's clip method. These are very solid and should hold up well.

In keeping with the skirts theme, I decided to test fit my skirts to the aprons. I'm glad I did. The joint on the skirts for the head apron were overlapping by at least 1/4". Some patience, Blue Painter's Tape, a Dremel tool and a file fixed that. The joint is now very nice. Sorry, I forgot to snap a pic before.







The long apron skirts all fit very nicely but I did discover they are side specific; screw holes are exclusive to each panel.

Glen, it's a plastic piece on a pool table that stays inside and gets no wear and tear. Next time a thread is started to rebuild a Corvette your comment will be very helpful.

Scott, looks great, thanks for sharing the process.
