Thanks Scott. Been too busy to do anything with the Bigfoot yet. I did hit it with the hose yesterday while washing the car and took off some more tape. Shows the nice eggshell original color of the gelcoat. I'm sure I'll never get it back that nice.
I did take a minute and ordered a can of Flitz. Years ago in a former life when I did a lot of boating I learned a little marina trick. Flitz is advertized as a metal polish but is excellent for renewing gelcoat as well. So one of these evenings I'll take the pressure washer to it and get of as much of the old decals, tape etc as possible. Finish it off with some Flitz and see what I come up with.
And now you've given me more incentive to get down the block and talk to my neighbor. Thanks for the wake up!
