I use it on my seats but never tried it on the fiberglass. A buddy of mine does and loves it.

I used the Leverage, easy to use. In fact I bought my first bottle from Trick, I liked it, ordered two more additional bottles last year, and good old Fred screwed me. Not as bad as most people here

A fiberglass guy I know once told me that the gel used on boats differs by builder, some pourus and others hard and any wax, polish will react differently based on the gel.

Donnie,

Thanks for the great feedback as well as everyone else. Is it ok to apply your stuff in direct sunlight or should I do it under a cloudy sky?

Imagine cleaning a spot on the inside of a smokers car windshield that hasn't been cleaned in a couple years. This stuff works!

I have no interest in this company (www.gel-gloss.com). I do not have any idea how long the finish will last. I just know it has the deepest shine of any product I have tried.
Yep the EXACT same thing happened to me with the same product. (compound, then polish = haze).

Have any other Envision owners used the compound & polish with similar results? PM me if you have.
