Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Re: waxes polishes etc-
« on: April 08, 2008, 09:33:22 am »
well im finishing with 3k grit and clearcoating is not an option so i will just use the rubbing and polishing compounds.

Easy to take it from that stage, though hard to find good 3000grit sand paper (of quality and consistancy in grain)
I would finish with 2000grit Meguiar's sand paper (w/d), best in the world (insert sales ad here  ;D) and follow with there
#49 or #91 cleaning products.  See link-----> http://marinerv.meguiars.com/product/Gel-Coat-Clean
Then your ready to follow up with there polish #45 http://marinerv.meguiars.com/product/Gel-Coat-Polish
Lots of tips and info on the Meguiar's web site, easy to follow, and professional results  ;D   
You'll love the look of your new boat finish...   but get a electric polisher...  with speed control!  a good one will cost $200+
Only way to go and your arms will thank you  >:D

One more note....   click the link for info on how easy it is to clean up that gel coat!

http://marinerv.meguiars.com/product/The-Basics-For-Gel-Coat-Maintenance
just follow the steps  ;)

Good info and good products. Sold Meguiar's stuff for years   ;D

Looks like a wet sand and clear prospect. Best get someone who has done it before do it for you, or help through it all.
Don't want to sand through any of the layers seeing you have many colors and some may be thin. Other than the few
scratches that go through the paint, she will look great with a coat of clear. Again, do you know someone with a shop?
Other wise the cost maybe more than your willing to spend. Got a budget in mind?
If you want to spend the least, go with buff and polish...  she'll still look good and save money for the Motor  ;D

if you sand it...  clear will do alot  ;D...   make it mirror again  >:D
but you can always try cut polish and then buff smooth the paint you got, for the cheapest way out.
Unless I see it up close first hand it's always hard to say what you have to start with and what to do.
got any pics you can take for us?  up close and personal (of the boat  :P) ?

Whats the best thing to use after wet sanding to bring the shine back out????

I would like to say...Clear Coat  ;D

You can go to Auto Zone and get Turtle Wax Rubbing and Polishing compounds.  You'll need an electric buffer.  What grit of sand paper did you finish with?
x2...  what Greg said ;)

Hey I'm wonderin if "Jet Debris" should be a new Forum topic for a celebrity death match smack talk ??

Maybe a forum header like "Jet 'effluent' Pump Talk" would work.

Sorry this thread, that started out funny, turned into something much less entertaining Tom. Hope you don't
stop sharing your humor with us in the future  ;)

FYI...  best wax is Carnuba wax. It's what is in everyones product that wants to work. Period.
The best products in each brand's line use Carnauba wax. Carnauba is a natural wax from the leaves of the Carnauba Palm in northern Brazil. It has a natural ability to retain oil, will not react with paint, and has excellent gloss properties. In its original state, it's as hard as concrete, so it must be mixed with oils or chemicals to soften it. (Manufacturers use various softening methods.)
Carnauba wax produces a very hard film to protect the vehicle's surface. The amount of Carnauba in various brands of car waxes ranges from 3% to 70%, says. Note that a label that reads "100% Carnauba," such as Mother's Pure Carnauba Wax, means that the wax component is all Carnauba, without other kinds of wax. But there must be other materials in the mixture to make the Carnauba useable.
Now polishing is another level all in it's self!    good read at --->http://209.85.173.104/search?q=cache:dHn1rfMAz8oJ:www.cartest.ca/cleaning_polishing__waxing.htm+carnauba+wax&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=3&gl=ca

Well I took your advice Beerjet...     :o bunk weld failed...  Now it looks like I will have to buy that mig welder after all  ;D
Trailer needs some attention before I can go to the lake, but it's all good, was planning on redoing her anyways... paint, welds, safety chains,
 bunks and tie downs to be improved! But now I know a few things need serious attention before I can move her. May have caught it myself, but...
thinking of what everyone said, thought I would take a look over everything. Glad I did  :o
Boating safer  ;D

Nope and none of us do!  Too bad the weather isn't better we could all be out working on our boats or going to the river.

Better weather...  it was like 12*C yestarday, practically almost summer up here  ;D

Those things are really bitchen for fighting alpine forest fires on relatively flat land/rolling hills, like in Canada... In reality when it comes time for them to drop a load on the SoCal wildfires they're more a PR stunt than they are effective. We just have too many canyons and such. Still looks awesome, do you know if they're mostly wood construction?

Forgot to answer your last question UNDONE...    all US steel  ;D

Just thought I would share a better look at where the Plane calls home.
First picture is of Mt. Arrowsmith, a hill I like to climb on weekends and from where I took the picture of Sproat Lake.



Next is the picture I took of Sproat Lake, where you would find that plane flying in and out of, like most puddles in Canada (B.C.)



a bit hazy, next time I'll take a better pic, but it gives you an idea of the flat lands up here and what that plane has to navigate when fighting fires ;D
Somewhere down there is where I Live along the river ;)
