Default Dull Fiberglass

Has anyone used the acrylic sealer products? I was going to compound and then wax to restore the shine. There are allot of people talking about the good and bad things with using the acrylic sealer just don't know which is the best choice?

I'd always heard that they turn yellow in the sun....I'd stay away from them just to be safe....

I don't see the point in them personally.... takes a good few years for the gel to fade so why not just buff it up every few years.

An electric buffer, a high grade rubbing compound and decent polish should get your gel looking like new in no time!

I agree with with BR...use rubbing compound designed for fiberglass and a good polish or wax will do alot better than an acrylic spray on ....

We're upto about $8.58 a gallon over here in the UK now (£1.12 a litre) - It's insane... am not looking forward to filling the boat up for the first time this year!

Ah well.. Love the boat! (Bring-On-Another-Thousand)
