I currently use Flagship. Seems to work really well and gives a great shine. Never tried Collinite, but it sounds like I should...

I did use it once and I honestly never saw a difference compared to Flagship.

Have to go with Race Glaze, use it on my 97 Fever and get compliments on the shine it still has. The stuff lasts a long time.

As far as levereage goes;

I have a 20 year old RED boat that has the original gel on the hull and is a b*tch to keep look good, almost have to wax every week. It is a little oxidised and if i had time i would wet sand the entire boat, just dont have the time.

Would you guys recommend using a wheel with the oxidation remover prior to using the polish? Is the polish more for newer looking/clean surfaces? Is the comound applied easily by hand? Thanks, MIKE

To me it acted like it had to much Silicone in it,like its greasy.said its for gel coat,I was putting it on paint.I use to use the collinite from 1990-1997 on the gel on my Scarab, I liked it then,The paste had a higher consatration of carnuba, but was harder to use that the liquid,Haven't tried it on the paint on the Hustler yet.

I have been using Mothers and NXT on the race car and show cars, couldn't tell much diff,the mothers seamed easier to take off.

I have been using Leverage. It is the EASIEST of anything I've tried. I can do the sides on my TG in less than 30 minutes on & off!

Navy blue sides on 2007 Cobalt. Always trailered and garage stored.

First year - Leverage polish - did pretty good seemed like I had to re-apply mid season.
Second year - Gel Coat labs micro sealer and polish - better than Leverage and only applied once, but definitely done at the end of season
This year - Going with Gel Coat labs micro sealer and polish with a top coat of Collinite 885 paste, why? Why not?

Leverage oxidation remover and polish. Went over it once with a foam pad on a slow-medium speed. Before and After. Works well
