    Best Polishing Product for black gelcote

    I've tried a couple things, but they either don't take out the hairline scratches or it leaves greasy streaks and swirl marks everywhere.

    RXP with a black hull..... what's the best thing to use to give it that real brand new wet deep black appearance... i'm damn near about to spray it down in black magic tire spray, lol.....

    what polish you guys use.... tell me the best stuff and best way of tackling it bc i want to restore it to near new condition.

    A good wet sand and buffing compound if you want to put that much into it

    It depends on the tools you have to do it.A professional rotary buffer and some 3M or Meguires rubbing compounds done in stages starting with a more course compound and working your way to a finer compound will do the job.I do not know how to wetsand properly so I couldn't comment on it. If you know how to do it properly it would be faster.Take your time and do it right to get the best result.

    i know i dont trust myself to wetsand and use an abrasive compound ... but i bet that's what really needs to be done for the perfect flawless shine... i do have a friend that is 110% capable of that kind of task, but didn't know if there was something else a bit milder i could do on my own without taking up his time as a last resort

    of course all the nooks and crannys don't help the cause when using a rotary buffer

    A wet sand and polishing compound is really not that difficult...It is just time consuming..But it delivers the best results by far....

    You have to be VERY CAREFUL when you use a rotary buffer around edges.RXP's are full of them.

    You need Yamaha Spray Polish works good. Easy on easy off. Try it find it at yamaha shops it makes chrome shine like a mirror and makes black deep and dark with shine. Bikers use it alot. It cleans protects and shines.

    Thats exactly why I didnt want A RXP with the black upper deck! So I got the red 05 RXP with the sliver upper deck for that main reason.
