    Best\Easiest Way to Clean Up Small Gelcoat Scratch

    I should have searched the forum before I tried taking the warning sticker off near my gas cap, but I didn't. I left a few small, not deep scratch marks in my gelcoat using a razor to scrape off the glue. What can I use to polish them out??

    Get some 3M Rubbing Compound. Should take it right out.

    Depending on how deep they are, you may need a heavy and a light weight rubbing compound. Start with light one, if it doesn't remove the scratches, then use heavy one, but then use the light one afterwards to remove fine scratches left from heavier compound.

    Step away from the ski and lay down the blade.

    Good tip, if you see flies landing on your new shiny gelcoat, they can be easily killed by a heavy blow with a sledge hammer, works everytime.

    LOL thanks tornado. I was able to remove most of it with the 3M rubbing compound.
