I usually have to go to advanced at the bottom and then down to management and then browse and upload. Never had to much luck with the insert picture option. IMO

Cant do it that way unless you have a photobucket or similar external account

Go down to were it says Post Quick reply and to the right is GO ADVANCED

Scroll down midway to Attach File section and hit the manage attachments
hit it and it will bring up another screen to browse to your pictures on your computer or phone or camera if cabled up.

then hit the upload key and wait a few til they are all up. It will tell you when. Close the window and scroll down and hit submit post

Let's try this again with pictures... Boat paint from Lowe's... Can't tell a whole lot in the pictures, but it really DOES have a very nice shine to it.

Thanks for the help in posting the pictures!

I think it looks great and perhaps after a few weeks of curing you could do the ZEP coating which is on another thread. I do see the shine on the bottom photo.

ZEP ??? Maybe Not.....

I know this is going to sound a lot like my position on observing towing capacities, but the ZEP product label clearly states that it's not for use on "Painted Concrete". For that reason I would be very careful about using it on cured (meaning at least 6 months old) paint and would hold off all together on using it on fresh paint.

You might want contact the mfg about using it on painted surfaces of any kind before you trust your new paint job to it.

I will defer to others who have used the product as I have not yet. Only seen the finished product with people saying after 4 yrs its still shiny and bright as ever. Perhaps a disclaimer - Use at your own risk.

RE: ZEP Floor Wax

I think that most (Including me), are using it to refurbish original fiberglass surfaces, but others may have experirnce with painted surfaces as well. I just didn't see that mentioned in the posts I read.
