    Where do you get that stuff? Was your gelcoat totally gone, as in you can't restore it with wax/ polish or buffing? My 02 5ver needs a makeover.

    Go to there web site check it out.
    When you order get the poli ox too.

    I tried the wax thing and it would not stay, looked good for a week or two then back to the no shine. Yes my gel coat was just starting to have hair and cracks thats how bad mine was.

    If your going to put a decal back on wait they wont stick to this stuff also trim any rolled edges off too.

    All in all I really like the out come. They say you need to do it one a year but you don't have to scrub it to the gel coat, just clean and reapply over the old coat.

    >WOW< Dogman, thanks.. this stuff Really WORKS GOOD. Much, much better than anything I've tryed so far. :sweet:sweet

    Followed the directions (I hated doing that:sly), did the Poli Prep scrub.. That's some powrfull stuff.. didn't want to put a graphic/decal back on, so I hit the graphic shadow with some 300 grit sandpaper, per the instructions (still hated doing that:sly).. did the prep scrub again.. Let everything dry for 30 minutes. Then did the 6 coats of Poli Glow. As the coats went on.. the graphic shadow has basically disappeared.

    The front 5r cap looks BETTER than Brandy New !!!!!

    I like the "Wet Look". The rear cap is next.
