    Polishing Isinglass

    Looking for suggestions on what pad is being used on isinglass. I used Marine 31 clear polish & cleaner and the following pads; Lake Country CCS yellow, orange, green, and ended with a CCS flat white pad. The first panel I cleaned improved the panel though still has a slight haze to it. I used only the white flat pad and the results were more than I expected. The second panel was not as bad as the first panel. Comments and recommendations are welcomed. I searched the forum, Facebook page, and YouTube which resulted in no topics of discussion. Thanks

    Re: Polishing Isinglass

    I cover this in my boat detailing book and also in my boat classes.

    You started out good but you really want and need to finish out with a softer foam finishing or foam waxing pad on your polisher.

    What polisher did you use?

    Re: Polishing Isinglass

    I was using a Shurhold 3100 and the Porter Cable 7424 both dual action. The boat detailing class is the definitive way to go though I feel that it is geared towards business oriented people. I need that weekend warrior class specializing is older model boats. Thanks for the welcome.
