    I know O'Reilys carries it, if not, then call my buddy Jason Burkett at
    www.paragon-products.com it's a Porsche place but he carries the full line of Lexol products. Ask for Jason or Chuck and tell em I said to call if you can't find it locally.

      Will do. I'll check O'Reilly's first. You just can't argue with those pictures.

          The cleaner just gets off any grime, embedded dirt that you can't see, it get the coating ready for wax. I do my boat twice a year; once when it comes out for spring and I did it about two weeks ago and that should take me through late October, early November depending on weather. I keep my boat on the lift most of the time so I take it out to wax.

            can you pick up the cleaner at any autoparts store? how often should I apply the glaze.
            im going to pick up the cleaner and polish....
            so I will have a 4 step waxing process. lol
            step 1: cleaner
            step 2: meguiars marine/rv polish
            step 3: meguiars mirror glaze
            step 4: meguiars premium flagship marine wax (black boat on front of bottle)

            when should a product like 3M's Perfect-It II #05973 Rubbing Compound be used? only to remove light scratches and oxidation only?

              I would skip your step two if that glaze is a swirl remover.

              I would only use the compound if the cleaner won't remove the scratches. You might try a clay bar before the compound, keep it moist though.

                I used the clay bar on a car with some overspray on it once. Wow, what a shine. $20 well spent IMO.

                  would it hurt to use meguiars boat polish and their glaze together???
                  on autos, they say you should use a polish then a glaze then a wax for the best possible shine on paint.... is gelcoat the same??

                    PepBoys carries Lexol products as well. I use their leather cleaner and conditioner on my seats in my vehicles..

                        what proof? That'll take the wax off!!

                        Gel coat is not clear coated like most of the autos of today. So you need somthing to nourish, replenish the shine. cleaner, swirl remover - glaze, and wax, then you can polish on the wax with lambs wool...or one other method: ice cold water in a spray bottle, mist the surface you just waxed, and dry that off with a clean tee shirt or soft terry cloth towel. The cold water will islolate any wax residue left and you'll pull that off when you wipe it down - that's my last secret; old paints like my 87 944 turbo, the black paint was a SSE, single stage enamel. So after you put nutrients back into the paint, no matter how good and patient you are, you get a few streaks in the paint - cold water will eliminate those.

                            would it hurt to use both? a polish then a glaze, or will the glaze remove the polish? and thanks for the ice water tip, i gotta use that too!!

                              Harold, got a question: since your underwater gear is polished, does it hum like the 25th Limited Editions did? Mark Redmans boat started humming at 28mph and drove me nuts.

                              As long as I have time or make time to "apply" the science. I'm like you, I just like seeing it done right and looking at the results.

                              An extra step never hurt Doo, just don't get it to where you wear yourself out or you're going "damn, one more time" then it's not fun.

                                Yea, I polished my rudder first, then the prop and finally the fins and strut over 3 years. It wasn't until the fins were done did it whine at 28 to 34 mph. Most people thought, with the 25th Anniversary boats something was wrong with the transmission or something, till some of us who had the whine with the polished items, told MC what it was. Most of those boat owners never did keep the items polished, so the sound went away when the really got dull. Mine stop whining after 3 or 4 trips to the lake without polishing. It's something we just live with and learn to enjoy after 14 years, just be purrdy! Personally, I think it's neat, and you can't hear it outside the boat.
