    Advice needed on what to use on Ultra Black Parts

    The spirit is moving me and I'm waxing and touching up my Ultra. BTW that colorite liquid Kawa matched pen is dynomite!

    What do you guys recommend for the black plastic front bumper, handles, etc. to hide scratches, even out color?

    I used to use Armor All on car dashes before it became super uncool.......!

    Color Rite factory matching paint

    http://www.colorrite.com/CRPLfactory...imageField.y=3

    They have lots of options, pens, cans, spray, etc.

    Pricey, but exact match. I got the blue, silver and clear coat.

    Is there alot of paint in the pens, when you use them do you apply like a car, paint then clear coat?

    I've purchased them, but haven't had the chance to use them.

    Do we need to use the primer first? Or just paint and clearcoat.

    my experience

    Net weight is 1/2oz, not a lot, probably plenty for intended purpose
    of touchups.
    I just used paint. Didn't use clear coat as it looked fine as is. The
    small places I did disappeared. Worked well.

    I would imagine you'd go all the way with primer, base coat, then clear coat
    if you had a big area.

    The docks I usually tie up at are awefully high above the water and underneath the wood is an abundance of metal, which doesn't get along with my ski, it's probably all the same spots you guys have.

    I do have one nice gouge from when I had to pull the seat to make sure I had tightened a clamp that i had off. I put the small rear seat in the footwell. That was a bad idea lol.

    I been selling used bikes and cars now for 12 years
    and I have found that a silicone spray does the best job because you can
    had polish it dry and it still looks like its wet like the other spray & shine products. But when you touch it it is dry and now resedue will get on you next time you use the ski.
    over here I use (CRC silicone spray in a blue/silvertin)
    I have used the maguires brand and didnt get the same results.

    I was put on to it from a printer friend of mine as they used it on the printing plate to stop paper jamming and to help slide better.

    and when you use it on painted surfaces and spray on polish off dry
    the surface is left with a great coating of silicone that stops alot of things being able to stick to it.

    As we all know posish is just a small % of silicone

    So in theory if the hull is super slippery may slide through the water better

    or maybe not but atleast it will look dam good anyway.
    just my 2c

    Hi Tom,

    Well i was hoping you'd get a better response, but here's my two cents.

    I have two favorites, but they are totally different from each other. Depending on the look i am trying to achieve...either "wet" or simply "clean".

    To get the clean look and well protected finish, i use 303 aerospace protectant. For the wet look, i use Mothers Back to black. The only trouble, if you call it trouble, with back to black is that it feels slippery, like their is alot of silicones in it (which their probably is!) but sure does shine.

    Also for the windscreen, Mothers platic polish rocks.
