    Gel Coat Repair Success!

    Well I attempted my first gel coat repair on the bottom of my STX-12F and it was a success! I will have to post up pictures later. Anyone have any tips on buffing it up to a clean shine? Should I wet sand it with some 1000 grit and then hit it with rubbing compound?


    Thanks!

    I think you may want to go w/1500, then 2000, then compound, then wax.

    That's what I used, but I'd wait for a few more opinions to be sure.

    Pictures please. Would love to see your work.

    As soon as it's warm enough outside, I've got to do a repair on my ski.

    Looking for any and all inspiration to get cracking on my job.
