Well... I too look for ‘mechanics in a can’ and from time to time find some things that do work. Above is an old ad for restoring the color to the gel coat of a fiberglass boat. The process involves 2 products -- Deks Rens Cleaner & Brightener and the Flood Co.’s Marine Penetrol -- which you an find locally or online from various suppliers by looking on the web through your favorite search engine. Here is the application recipe:
Mix Deks Rens Cleaner & Brighter 50/50 with fresh water.
Apply mixture with sponge, nylon abrasive brush, or soft scrub brush. Do not use a metal scrub pad or metal wire brush.
Let mixture work -- let is stand on surface for about 10 minuets.
Rinse away dirt and grease with fresh water. Wipe down surface with a damp sponge. Wipe up excess water with an old bath towel and allow to dry -- completely.
Apply Marine Penetrol with a soft cloth.
Polish gently before surface dries, using a lint-free cloth.
PLEASE NOTE TO FOLLOW ALL SAFETY PROCEEDURES FOUND ON THE MANUFACTURES CONTAINERS.
Now, my favorite wax is a product called SUPERCOAT MARINE SURFACE TREATMENT. Again you can find these folk's product on the web. I use this ‘wax’ on just about everything to make a long lasting shine.
