Gel Gloss and Paint

I know that it works wonders on fiberglass caps, but is it safe for paint on the rest of my HR. Anybody had any results either way?

I think it is safe enough for paint, but totally unnecessary. Use a product designed for clear-coated paint surfaces, e.g. a modern car polish. It should be easier to apply and give equal or better results. Gel-gloss' forte is polishing out oxidation, and that should not be something you need to do on a full-body paint rig.

Personally, I like Protect-All for my full body paint coach. It is very easy to apply, shines well, and last several months. Maguires makes some spray on detailers that work pretty well too. I use a heaver duty polish product if I need to polish out scratches or remove caked on bugs, but otherwise I like the ProtectAll.

Gel Gloss

To be honest, A friend that uses it on his suggested that I try it to remove black streaks and it works really great, better than anything else that I have tried. Once I get it like I want it I will go back to a good quality auto wax. Thanks for the input.

It has more abrasive in it, which is what enables it to remove oxidation and minor scratches. Not surprising that it also removes stubborn black streaks, but just be aware that your are polishing off a microscopic amount of paint too.

Black streaks vary a lot in composition, since they are generated by the dirt that washes off the roof. Different roof materials and different dirt/soot/chemicals in the air makes for substantial difference in the resulting streaks, so different techniques may be need to get them off. A polishing compound should always work, though. Just don't run too long/hard in one place.
