Clear coat over Gel-coat

Here are some pics of the boat all cleared. Next thing will be for me to wet sand it out and polish the heck out of so it shine like crazy. How does it look now?

Thanks Guys, I just polished the top cap of the boat and what a big diffrence that made. For the sides I am going to do them tomorrow and start laying down some stars and some new gold pin stripping.

Polished the top cap

The pics out side I didnt have the top cap polished yet. Here are some inside pics after I wet saned it and hit it with the wheel. Last pic is me holding the aluminum vent to see what it is going to look like.

You're asking us how does it look?! IT LOOKS FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!!!!!!! That turned out really well. Great job Jim. Can't wait to see it with the stars and stripes on it. That is what I call a beautiful piece of art.
