Itís been a while back but there was a three step process that was talked about on here. It involved wet sanding and buffing with different grits of said product. Seemed like there was like a bundled package you could purchase that had all the needed compounds and waxes to make the restoration.

Does anyone know what that product was. Iím wanting to bring my boat back to life.

Thanks

It is not that hard. Just some elbow grease.

I used 800 then 1200, then 1500 then 3000 and went overboard with 5000 grit.

Always WET sand in the direction of the length of the boat.

Then wash and buff with three stage compound. I use 3M Pro Grade and finish off with Meguiars Gold wax.

Takes about 3 hours per half boat top cap.

Before


After


The video does not do it justice. Night and day difference. Went from a 1994 boat to a 2014 boat appearance wise.
