    Took a little elbow grease but made the boat shine again! I was ready to take it to the pro's and spend almost $500.00 to get the same results.

                Worked really well considering my boat color was really faded from being neglected from previous owner

                  I used this on a 6 year old dull oxidized 5th wheel trailer. I didn't think it was going to work all that great. But to my surprise it was a night and day difference. If I missed a spot it would stand out. I used a 7" electric buffing wheel with a lambs wool pad @ 2600 rpm. Even the graphics came back to life! Great stuff well worth the time and effort.

                      I have a 2006 28' blue hull boat. It had some chalky areas, you could easily see where I removed the boat name from both sides. I had tried other 3m products and meguires. It came out nice but I wanted to really get the hull perfect and decided to go compound with 1000 emory for scratches. Sales person recommended 3M Color Restorer. I reluctantly bought it. Went home and in 10 minutes I was speechless- I called a buddy over to show him and then he called two other guys over. They were amazes. I had to go over boat name twice but it disappeared- HOLY. spreads easy and comes off easy. I used a rotary wheel. Bottle says apply at 2500rpm then slow it up and the buffer removed the product. WOW!!!!!! My blue hull looks NEWish

                        My boat is Canary Yellow. Salt water oxidizes on the boat. This product is very good when you want to restore brightness to a fiberglass boat.

                            Those in the know say to start with the least aggressive product for polishing out oxidation. I had light to moderate oxidation on my boat. This product did the trick for me. Since I used an entire bottle on one side of my 24 foot cruiser and this product is not stocked in the stores, I had to use another brand on the other side. The 3M product was superior. Worth waiting for when ordered on llne. But I wish they'd stock it in the stores!

                              I am a professional fiberglass repair technician and I use this product to restore the surface of gelcoat on boats regularly. When used with a high speed buffing wheel it brings the surface back to a near new appearance. With annual or better yet semi-annual use it gets better with each use for the first few (3-5) times. It must be followed with a wax for maximum effect and protection.
