    Cleaning/ Waxing

    So as May is right around the Corner it is about time to start thinking about Uncovering and getting my Ski's ready for the Lake this Summer. I am looking to clean and Wax the Ski, What products do you guys recommend for the hull and etc? Also can I wax no Hull items such as the front Storage hood mirrors and etc? or since they are plastic do you guys recommend a plastic shine?

    I can help a little. How bad is the paint?

    1) mild compound or scratch remover.- basically something to remove fine scratches.

    2) polish- this will put a high luster to the paint.

    3) wax/sealer- something to preserve your work.

    You have to decide, how bad is the paint. I just did the polish then sealer. Very happy! Doesn't take long at all.

    I use turtle wax or meguires scratch remover for compound. Meguires for polish. And Rejex for a sealer.

    Some of the easiest and best wax you'll ever find. ARDEX VIPER Wax......it's a gelatinous liquid. Very simple.
