    Need some help!

    My boat is only a 2000 and stored indoors in the winter and mostly under a full cover in the summer. It is becoming heavily oxidized on the deck in the white gelcoat. The colors are fine (red and purple).

    I have used fineese it, and mild rubbing compound with no luck using a foam pad. Should I try a wool pad or a more abrasive compound or just wet sand it with 1500-2000 grit and then take the wheel to it.

    Any recommendations?

    3-M also has a Perfect it Line that works well..

    You may try the Extra cut in a small area then go with the Fiinesse it that combination maybe will save you the wet sanding and use their Pads !

    Check Out They Have A Product Vibra-cut That Will Make Anything Oxidized Shine Like New. I Deal In Older Used Cars And This Product Is The Absolute Best I Have Ever Seen. Apply The Product With Hi Speed And Wool Pad.
