Probably not getting all the oxidation off and it keeps coming back through after its buffed and waxed. Use a heavier cut buffing compund to start with.

Nope, it's just wet sand no wax. Then clear, you will need a pro if you dont wanna pay them to fix your mistakes as well ( Im livin proof ) .
Everyone that has a red boat feels your pain. Good luck.

I would suggest going to a good body shop.
if you have never wetsanded before its is not a good
idea to practice on your boat.

There are 1000grit, 1500 microfine and 2000 grit
aswell. If buffing with a wool pad and 3m Rubbing compound
dont bring it back nothing will.

Pooring water on a dull spot will give a pretty good indication
of what it will look like with new clearcoat.


Good luck
Gerry

I'm not familiar with Poli Glow but I have used a product called Vert Glass on my buddies old Glastron Ski Machine.

If you're looking for a relatively quick fix without spending a bunch of $$$ for a professional clear coat job, this stuff works pretty good and will last for the season. You lay it down with a sponge. Like anything,the better the prep job, the better it works.
