Remove oxidized fading
 
The last person that owned my boat must have had the back facig the sun as their is slight lightenig of paint in a couple areas.

How do I get that back to normal and looking good as the rest of boat color and paint is perfect?

We discuss this about once a month. A search for oxidation removal will get you lots of results.

Here is a link to my method with some results pics. I've used it on multiple boats with the same results.

it works :)

I did something way different than a bucket of water and sandpaper....
I built my own contraption like this and as I was sanding with my right hand, I was holding the poly tubing above the sandpaper with my left hand... kept the sandpaper a lot cleaner and it had plenty of bite.

used 3M rubbing compound and 3M finesse-it polish with a variable speed buffer. Before and after photos. It takes time, patience and your arms will be sore but so worth it in the end.

my oxidation was worse, the shadowing contrast about the same, and I think my results came out a little better.... plus, I was able to wetsand out a couple of dings....
but, digital pics and computer screen don't look life real life.
I'm very happy with mine, as I'm sure you are also:)
