Perma Plate vs Wax

When I bought my TT, I also bought a Perma Plate application. It was installed 12 months ago and I re-applied it but not happy with the dull look. Is there another product that will restore the shine on my gel-coat?

I recently used Meguiars Marine Cleaner Wax for the first application. Then followed up with a coat of Meguars Flagship Premium Marine Wax. It looks amazing and super smooth and silky

I'm having some work done on my unit right now... I was talking to the guy who owns the repair facility... he showed me a unit older than mine that was coated and sealed with CostaCoat... usually sold/installed by dealers under a yearly contract... I was amazed... he sent me to ebay.com... honestly after seeing the results I bought the kit.. the kit showed up today... still in the box... but I was given the phone # of the owner... called him... boy he's long winded but talked about how/why it works... 619.548.8782... he's on the west coast just out of Spokane WA... and seems to understand the chemistry of cleaning and maintaining a very high quality sealer/uv protector...

So when the RV gets home that's my first project...

I don't have a clue if the # above will come through when I post this... will I get in trouble for suggesting a commercial product...

Check out Rejex. You have to remove all of the old wax before applying but if you do it by their instructions one application will last several months if not a year depending on where you live and how you store your RV.

Our RV is stored outside and we apply Rejex in the spring and fall. We also apply a fresh coat to the front before each trip and most of the bugs will wash off with just a garden hose. We also apply it to the windshield and in my opinion it works better than RainX.

RejeX: Nothing Sticks but the Shine!
