    [Logbook] SHO Dragao

    Hi everyone!
    New member here! Im Rudolf, im 24, and I am a proud owner of a 2010 SHO.

    Fow now, i just upgraded the Impeller. Im looking to buy a performance power filter and several things until July.
    Btw, the gelcoat has some light scratches and it's a little bit faded and im looking for a product to bring back the shine on it. Any product you guys recommend? Thank you Cheers from Portugal.

    Congratulations on the ski and welcome to the forum. As far as the appearance goes it is normal automotive paint so anything used for a car will work on it.

    Thank you!
    Im not sure about it.. Because, as i know, the car's paint has clear coat instead of gelcoat..

    Yamahas are not gelcoat, they are painted. So car stuff works fine.

    Welcome to the hulk. bryantjopplin, is right ....not gelcoat, a good automotive compund & wax should do the trick.

    Nice then!! I was thinking about buying some abrasive++ compound, but if you guys say it is clear coat on yamahas, im relaxed now thank you

    If its faded, chances are the clear coat is gone. They were very crappy for this ski and never lasted long. I'd personally do a teardown and a full spray job on her, with a quality gel coat.

    Well, its not faded.. it has shine, but not 100% because it has some swirls marks and scratches that makes the shine not so shinny eheh Im in doubt about buying compound, or polish for a first polish stage. Then finish it with fine polish and wax or selant on it.
