Yeah, but I don't think he would appreciate what law enforcement might have to say to him if he were on the river in California.  LMAO!!  :D

I started with oven cleaner and had to use steel wool to get the good ol' 70's paint off. Washed it off with soap and water, then went over the area with rubbing compound to get rid of the swirl marks the wool left behind.

I have to thank Brad for the oven cleaner idea... MEK didn't even touch it.

What does it do, remove the letter or the oxidation on the gel coat?

That looks really good. Congrats.  

Hey Brad, what are you options/limitations for lettering?  I'd really like something besides the ugly azz letters they sell at West Marine......john

$25 for the set of 2.

The easy off oven cleaner is to remove the painted on numbers on gelcoat.

John - I can do any font you want...and it will definatly look cooler then the block letters at west marine.
