    Re: Marine 31 Captain Coating

    I have never used Marine 31, but I had some high spots that I missed on the hood of my Audi using CQuatz UK 3.0 (a different ceramic coating product for paint).

    I compounded the hood with a fine polish and pad and then an ultra fine polish and pad then Eraser (an IPA based cleaner to remove oils), then replied the coating and did a better job on the high spots and it came out fantastic.

    If I were you I would compound with a medium to fine compounding polish and foam pad to remove the coating (or a fine wool pad as gelcoat does not require as fine a pad as paint) and then use Eraser or another IPA-based solution to remove the oils from the compounding polish and then reapply the Marine 31 coating. I would absolutely not use a cleaner wax because you want the ceramic coating to bond directly with the gelcoat; a wax covering won't let it do that.
