I can't wait for Jim to arrive home with her. Since she is small and round and orange, I have named her Clementine.

Amy,

Not quite sure which thread to put this in, but I was just looking through some Boler pics for something else, and I ran across this one I had saved of a Boler with your same outside colors. Looking quite cute and shiny. Just thought you might like to see it

Wow, that is cute and shiny! I imagine I will look into my options for making our new Boler shiny because it would be nice. But I like the orange color so much that the lack of shine doesn't bother me as much as it might.

Amy,

Since the orange is almost certainly the original gelcoat, you can probably "compound" it (this is essentially buffing it with a slightly abrasive paste made for this purpose) and get the shine back. What you are doing is taking off the oxidized surface layer to reveal fresh gelcoat.

Gelcoat is relatively thin, so you can't just grind, willy-nilly, but if it hasn't been compounded before, and you are reasonably careful, you could end up with a nice, shiny Clementine.
