gelcoat/ polishing restoration video on youtube very helpful

There is a few videos I have came across recently. If you look up Garry Dean boats on youtube you will find many boats that were highly oxidized and he brings them back to life and talks about what products do and do not work. I went to his fb page and he has his personal cell number and I got a hold of him and he gave me all the info I needed for polishing/restoring my gelcoat. He told me step by step, product by product, etc. This vid is certainly worth a watch. I was about to pay a lot of money to the fiberglass shop to polish my gelcoat to the tune of $700 and I am lucky I found his videos. Will share my results soon. Check out this video https://youtu.be/rPLK-SaV0Kk

The guy is goofy but can't argue with the results.

That looks better than the outcome of the 3M system I used from reading on here.....and much less work.

I too found the 3M system to be OK, but nothing more than that. Not sure if its the DA polisher thats not cutting thru enough or what.

I'm going to look this guy up. I have a lot of oxidation above the swim platform on my 197 that I would like to buff out.

It would be nice to see video of him actually doing the work. What words of wisdom did he have? The boat turned out great!

Would be interested in hearing more about which products he's recommending now. That HD Uno product looks to be discontinued and has since been replaced by at least one or two products. Would you be up for sharing more about the products and steps you've learned? I'm considering buying a DA polisher this season for making quicker work on details.

He has his own product line now. Here is his website https://www.detailjuice.com/.

You can also google detail juice. If you look him up a facebook he listed his personal cell if you scroll down a little bit. Talking to him over the phone in my limited knowledge this guy seems to know his ****. He was very helpful and told me to call anytime, also gave me the list of everything I would need for my boat. He also has free shipping on all products, and was very honest and very to the point about the process, and products.

He has several other videos that are a bit more informative. Figured I would post that one because it is a mastercraft and shorter than other videos of his on youtube.

No problem. I like to share info where I can, and most important hopefully we all can learn and of course pass it on.
