    Re: Off topic. Fiberglass detailing tub

    And see this is why I posted the weird threads I did. Because you never know where some products will overlap! Now to find something that can polish my Corrian countertop and take out the scratches from the 2 year old....

    Scratches might take a lot more "leveling" work and this could require more complicated products and techniques. Possibly things like machine sanding?


    But to restore gloss, clarity and a high shine, use any orbital polisher with a foam pad and a quality one-step cleaner/wax.


    There's threads on this forum with these types of Corrian projects.

    Re: Off topic. Fiberglass detailing tub

    Thanks for your help.
    I couldn't get good before pics, this is the best one.

    I don't know what happened to the rest of my text. One on the left is before.

    Very hard to do. Took a lot of work with RA then 3 inch machine for tight spots. Wife is pleased with outcome.

    I know you wont see this post until Mon. at the earliest. Just wanted to use a peaceful Sun. AM to get the post up.

    Thanks

    PS correction: Middle photo appears to be "before". Check file names. I don't understand it. I uploaded that separate and first so it would make sense and be in order. Well I am not to good at posting.

    What you can't see is the unsightly marring(?) that looked like hard water spots and some scratches on the before shot. It was really dull and looked dirty even though clean. You could feel the roughness also.
