Well I used the Red Max on my 92 that I am trying to sell. It came out great. Located a possible buyer on Craig's List. A couple showed up looked it over and pealed out the dough just like that. I have no doubt that the appearance of that nice shinny unit greatly helped sell it.

Another Red Max Fan. I should have spent more time scrubbing a few spots and used some more caulk remover, but I was anxious to get the show on the road. I'm very happy with the results after 4 coats, anyway.

For those of you following my UHaul upgrade, these are my new refrigerator vents. I'm still working on trimming out the interior around the refrigerator door.

Well, you can add me to those who have used the Poliglow product. It came out great. I have a 98 Casita that I acquired at my local air base at a sale at the recreation area. It was pretty oxidized. It's looking pretty good now. Very happy with the result.

Randy I used Red-Max Pro recently on a 1985 Bigfoot and now doing a 1985 U-Haul. Looks as good as Poli-Glow.

Hi Thomas - your UHaul looks great. Wondering what kind of paint and the color you used on your vents? Greg is salivating over your cool hubcaps, where did you them and size? We are still on the hunt for the decals. Have watched Ebay but haven't seen any listed. Are yours original? Aren't I a pest? Greg is busy scrubbing our little UHaul for the big Red Maxx Pro day. Can't wait. Thanks..love your pictures.

Thanks. Paint on vents is Rustoleum for plastic spray paint, Shell White # 211364. Wheel covers are just cheesy 13" models from Meijer, a Midwest grocery / department store. They were closed out for $5 a set, so I took a chance. I needed to cut a hole in the center for the new hubs with brakes that I have installed, so I didn't want to spend a lot. I haven't towed it with them yet, so I can't vouch for their quality.

My decals are original, except I replaced the rear lettering with a set from Goosler.

I bought Poly-Glow before I read all the info about Redd Maxx. I spent a tremendous amount of time cleaning the trailer before putting the polish on. I washed it outside and when I was ready to start the next day it was covered with sand and junk out of the trees the wind was blustery. I washed it off again took it into the garage; still felt sandy closed the doors got out the vacuum and went over it again,,,, work, work, work. I put six coats on. I painted the front area where it had serious rock damage. ( I repaired the gel coat with resin and sanded it, before painting) here are some pics.

Looks good Kenny. That two tone look is nicer than original. Maybe the manufacturers should take notice. That kind of coating on new ones might be a good idea.

Thumbs up Good job!

Looks nice Kenny! It is a lot of work, prepping the egg, but the results are long lasting and well worth the effort. BTW, great idea using the truck bed paint on the front to protect against, and cover rock and gravel damage.

Great looking job Kenny. I really like the gravel guard truck bed spray you did. I've always been found of the Bigfoot little 13.

The use of the bed liner spray is brilliant. Please keep us posted as to its longevity. You did a beautiful job.

Has anyone ever answered whether you can put one of these other products on OVER Poliglow? I'm going to use up my bottle of PG with this round. So for next year's coat (and I think I'll put one on in the fall before the winter winds hit) can I switch or should I use more Poliglow?

Thumbs up

I think there are members who have used both, and perhaps they would do a little experiment with Poly-Glow with Redd Maxx over the top of it. Any takers??? Come on now "Git-R-Done".
