    No update yet. I just received my needed products to start polishing in the coming weeks. Seeing the results of the spray and forget I am a little unsure as to how to proceed. In test spots it is doing something remarkable. Question is, how will it hold up or will it cause any harm?

    My advice? Use something that is actually designed for what you're working on. This includes not using a floor wax on an RV. I don't profess to know any of the chemistry involved. But I do tend to think the people who manufacture those products do and they design them to have the optimum results for the surface they're made for. Also, if the Spray and Forget is powerful enough to remove oxidation without any buffing on your part, I'm suspicious of what else it's doing to your paint. You can't get something for nothing, and I have yet to see a product that delivers results like buffing without any effort or any work. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

    My opinion: you're received some great advice from a world-renowned detailer (Mike Phillips). Go with what he suggested.

    Wasn't recommending either although I have had tremendous success with them. Just saw one this week I did 3 years ago and am amazed. But I usually only use it on 90's style pre laid panel type walls. The ones that have some. Chop strand matt printing through. I have used it on a ton of non skid swim platforms. I laughed at people using it rather than doing things the correct way. The I realized it has its place. People live the results and it is higj profit for me in my area. I have an rv dealer that I do some for. Important about every other year to maintain it or it will fail. Then you have a mess if you let it go.

    But I was simply telling him how to remove it. Before he tries to go the other route of compounding. You cant even wet sand the stuff off. You need the stripper. Simple.

    Who ever said vertglass and poliglow was not any work?? Where you come up with that? It is an all day job!. Nothing about an rv is easy. And the product is specifically designed for the application. When I get my hard drive back from data recovery I will show you results that look LIKE buffing. A lot of people thought I had painted thr bottom molded luggage area around perimeter. Just like some do on buff jobs. I buy compound in buckets for my marine work. Sometimes I go another route. My results speak for themselves.

    And again my point was to explain what it was to he could remove it so he could do your method. The only one acceptable to those on these boards that have never used the methods they slam. No worries. I was one of them with my nose in the air for many years on this issue. Although I never claimed it wouldn't work or that it wasnt manufactured for the application. Because that simply is not true. I was simply selfish and didn't want it cutting into my rotary compounding work by diy'ers. I am over that. Few will apply themselves anyway. And many that do it fails.
