DON'T wax it... just order your kit and save yourself the extra work... the poliGlow cleaner is going to strip off the wax you apply as well as clean the pores of the gelcoat. I will try and get a few more good pics to post.
I FINALLY got the curb side completed with Poli Glow! WOW is all I can say!

Wow is right. I'm sitting in my car waiting for Tallulah and I'm glad I have my sunglasses on. Great job.

I cannot get over how surgically white (which is fantastic) the whole curb side of the coach is. It actually made it whiter! And in the afternoon, it actually does need sunglasses!


I'll tell you though, I had talked myself out of it Saturday night...I had so much trouble with streaks and running using the bleach then rinsing then trying to use the Poli Prep, I wanted to scream! But I persevered (thanks for the pep talk, Rvguy !) and finished up around 1 on Sunday. This was the worse part of the whole coach. The street side is in 80% better condition and the front and back are as well, far better than the poor abused curb side. I put 6 coats, as Poli Glow recommended 4-6 coats, I erred on the side of caution. Can't wait to do the street side, right now, it looks almost as good as the curb side does with the Poli Glow, it will be lookin dazzling when I get done with it!

That re-roof job was incredible! I looked at all the pictures. You did a fantastic job...!

Street Side Completed

Poli Glow is now glowing on my street side of the coach too.

Didn't take pics as the sun was too late in the day yesterday when I finished.

Will get some today.

WOW! x2 on this street side. As it was nowhere near as damaged as the curb side, it, as expected, looks near showroom !

Will post pics after lunch!

Six hours on the street side. About half of the curb side.

Poli Glow Completed

Despite the weather, being cold and cloudy this weekend, I persevered and finished the Poli Glow! You can see the fence in the reflection on the aft mirroring on the back!

It looks good. Did you do everything or just the fiberglass? I have been holding off because all though the fiberglass looks like yours the painted areas look good after waxing. Can't decide if I want to do all or just fiberglass and if one would look better than other.

I did from the trim piece above the bay doors up to the gutter line, the fiberglass wheel well covers, and the mirrors.

I was told don't put it on the bay doors as they are aluminium/painted. I would sure like to though!

New Poly Glow Micro Fiber Mitt Works Great

I used the new micro fiber mitt for the Poli Glow re-application a couple months ago.

I washed and prepped the coach for a maintenance coat of Poli Glow last weekend and was able to use the mitt for the application instead of the chamois type hand brick and I want to say the mitt worked fantastic!

I highly advice the mitt for any future Poli Glow applications, folks.

Poli Glow Micro Fiber Mitt Applicator - Poli Glow Products

No, I am too scared of heights so I had to use the old applicator for the upper 3' of the coach, but the micro fiber mitt went so much faster and easier!

I put 2 maintenance coats on and 3 on the west (curb) side where the sun is so relentless. She looks fantabulous!

I also did my tires and wheels and put 303 on the tires, WOW did that make a difference. I was told to put nothing on them, but 303 is a good product and I used it on them, looks fantastic...I'll get a picture or two and post....
