Pay one of the detail guys on here to do it. When they show up, grab a lawn chair, crack a beer, and tell them how hard the job must be. In the end it will look good and you will have an enjoyable day with cocktail in hand:thumbsup:I have some pretty heavy oxidation on my gelcoat. What is the best compound and polish in your opinion. I really dont want to polish for three months:thumbsdown:
:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: My only suggestion is to use the 3M HD ultra paste wax. It seems to last much longer.Here is one of my old posts on the subject. I just cut and copied it from an old thread.
I did my Grady and it was like a piece of floating chalk when I bought it. It came up a great and people said it would not last but they were wrong it has lasted just fine.
First off you need a real polisher/buffer. I bought one of these Makita's http://www.tylertool.com/mak927elsan...FZJ95Qod9UTTvg
I then bought a bottle of 3M Heavy Duty Rubbing Compound. With a Wool Bonnet I did the whole boat just as the directions specified. Just clean your bonnet and watch you edges so you do not burn throught the gel-coat. This will cut the oxidation and the gelcoat.
Next I got a bottle of 3M Finnesse and did the whole boat just like I did I did with the HD rubbing compound previously. The finnese is a polish and will bring the color up nice.
Then I waxed the whole boat one time with Colonite Fleetwax which is a wax and cleaner in one. The I waxed the boat again with Colonite Fiberglass boat wax. All wax is applied by hand with an applicator pad and then taken off with a cloth diaper. Now you can clean spots later with Fleetwax and then wax the spots again with the Fiberglass boat wax as needed.
It is a lot of work but it is worth it in the end.:thumbsup:
