I'm in the process of buffing the gel coat right now, finished the front deck and starboard side hull last night. Going to do some more today. I'll post before and after pics here when its done.
I'm using the properboatcare.com kit pictured here and bought a Vector circular buffer from them as well. It's working great and real easy with the circular buffer. Thanks to Bump for giving me info and inspiration: http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/sh...hlight=orbital
BTW, anybody know of a good cleaner that will easily remove pinstripe tape residue? I tried alcohol and nail cleaner remover and some old car bug and tar remover, but it's not working too easily, the stuff just gums up and still sticks to the hull.
