Gelcoat restoration?

Am planning on restoring oxidized gelcoat this fall. Does anyone have any remarks or experience using the Shurhold polisher with Buff-Magic and Pro polish?

Never used the stuff. I use 3M products, some sort of 3M rubbing compound, typically med grit. It cuts pretty good, will take out 1000grit scratches and then some variation of 3M Finesse It polish. Both with a rotary polisher and the correct bonnets or foam pads. I use this stuff universally on single stage paint, base/clear systems and gelcoat.
Search on here, there's several writeups on polishing out oxidation.
