Cleaning gel coat exterior

I have seen a post that mentioned a product for cleaning up the oxidization of exterior gel coat that quite a few posts concurred with. I didn't write down the name of it at the time. I seem to remember it was a name something like 'Red Max'. It was available in the U.S. but one reply mentioned another name that it was available as at Lowes in Canada. Does this ring a bell with anybody or does any one else know of such a product.

I guess I should try and bookmark these useful posts when I see them. Is there a way of doing this on these forums

Hi Peter, here's a direct link to the lengthy thread you're thinking about: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...ell-43004.html

You can bookmark any thread, just like you can any web page. I use an Excel spreadsheet where I paste the URL into one column and a meaningful title in the next column. My "bookmarks" are over 400 records now... waaay to many to bookmark in the browser. YMMV

Peter, us Canucks can buy the Zep floor wax finish at Home Depot, and Bar Keepers Friend is available at Home Hardware; Works great, as I did it on a few trailers and friends have had it on theirs for years. Jim

Thanks Jim ....... there's a Home Hardware not too far away from me in White Rock and a Home Hardware a few blocks away. I'll be picking up the items on Friday and getting Wendy on to it 'toot sweet' ( she's a bugger for polishing ).
