Re: Compounding and Waxing Topsides

We used Meguiar's 1 and 2 last year. I did the hull and my partner did the topsides by hand...old school method!

Coarse rubbing:


First polish:



Second polish:



Third and final polish and sealing coat:



The gelcoat is original and the boat is 38 years old this year.

Re: Compounding and Waxing Topsides

Carbubba, isn't that a wax some cracker invented to polish his pick-em-up. Personally, I'd rather use Carnauba Wax. Works super and long lasting.

Re: Compounding and Waxing Topsides

Yep. Our car waxes also based on the Carnauba thing.
