This product is amazing and easy to use. Just put on with hand pad, then polished it with my Makita and Wool pad. wiped surface clean with dry rag. Finish looks brand new! Convinced guy next to me with 25 year old viking to try it. He loved it and used it all up. We ar now heading to buy more!
I have tried many other products, now throwing them away. I will try adding 3M wax on top.

Didn't work on pin striping

this product was supposed to remove pinstripes. It did nothing. I used the 3m eraser wheel which worked well

      I used this to restore a 25 Year old GelCoat Whirlpool tub. It saved me 6K on replacing the tub. I will be looking for a finer cut polish, in certain light you can see the abrasive marks, normal light it looks like a mirror finish.

              I used the 3M buffer pad that it call for on the directions. Definitely worth money spent on their products.

                  My project Boat was extremely faded and oxidize bit of a learning curve as a beginner but for best results I had to do light sanding with 1500grit sandpaper on Delco use the 3M product with grit sandpaper on Delco use the 3M product a buffer then went back with a shine compound. The marine restorer and wax is a very aggressive cut just what you need to bring back a faded gel coat. Don't kid yourself if your boat is as bad as mine was it is not a one step prosses.

                    Comments about Marine Restorer & Wax:

                    I purchased the 31' Cape Horn late in 2007 and it's been baking in the hot Florida sun ever since. When it was new I didn't wax it on a set schedule. Then after about five years I was having it waxed every six months. The boat continued to fade in the hot FL sun so I stopped compound waxing with a plan to paint the hull this year. Upon watching ship shape tv and seeing the great results of a chalked out restoration I gave this product a shot to get one more year out of the jelcoat. To my surprise my son was able to bring the shine back to squeak out one more year. In this day and age every little bit helps. I'm still planning to paint next year. So I rate this product very highly as it performed as advertised. Dan C.

                      I used this on a moderately oxidized black hull, and white deck. It worked well bringing the color back out, and was relatively easy to use. I used a buffer, and did some by hand. Really didn't have to work at it all that hard. I really liked that it had wax in it already. Kind of a two for one.
