Gel Coat Restoration

Have a little oxidation towards the back of the boat... Has anyone used this stuff before?

I'm curious to see what others say.
I use 3M Rubbing Compound, 3M Finesse It II, Meguiars Marine Wax.

I picked some up and gave it a shot this afternoon. Didn't put a whole lot of elbow grease in it as I had my hands full with my platform and new sound system, but from what I see I'm impressed. I think I will pick up a buffing wheel and hook it up to the drill tomorrow to see if I can get a little more penetration into the gel coat. But not too bad.

Posted this in another thread he has his own products and will answer any questions you have. I bought his solitaire product and a harbor freight da polisher for less than a $100.

No experience w/ that 3Mproduct, I use meguiars 44 restorer, polish, and Premium wax, but I'd start w/ 32 fl oz bottle and not spend $$ on gallon before ya know it's something you'll use again. Gallon will last a long long time!

Guess you can't upload two images from an iPhone into the same post... The second one just replaces the first one

Nice work. Big fan of porter cable dual action polisher for boat and cars. Also huge fan of 3M products, especially their different compound (for bad oxidation) or polish (for final gloss look)... followed by their marine paste wax. I finally realized it buffs out pretty easily with a clean microfiber cloth if you keep rotating the cloth. (Once it gets wax on the cloth it's hard to remove more wax.). I just re-waxed yesterday and used the new perfect-it boat wax on a section of the boat. Easy on and off. Holding final comments for now.

If you are new to detailing, go to websites like Chemical Guys, Griot's Garage, or AutoGeek.net. Great videos to show how / why products work. (WARNING: detailing can be very addictive!!!)
