I followed DuPont's suggestions and purchased the "Repair Kit" from Micro-Surface.
First, I cleaned the surface with Soft Scrub, to remove any Protect-All residue. Then I wet sanded the counter top by hand with the 1200 grit Micro-Surface pad. When I was done, I polished the surface with Weiman's Polish.
Unfortunately I'm not at all pleased with the results. Sanding these counter tops by hand can lead to swirls and lines, which my counter top is now covered with. I carefully followed the directions, but the surface almost looks worse than it did before.
The only thing I was impressed with was the Weiman's Polish. I applied it with my orbital polisher that I use for the exterior paint, and it did a very good job. The surface has a nice sheen, but the swirls and lines are very visible.
I was hesitant to try Sue's suggestion of a high speed buffing wheel, as they usually create a big mess, especially when working with water. I'm wondering now if I should have given it a try.
I plan to strip it down again and try either the buffing wheel, or someone else's suggestion to of a palm sander. I don't own either item, so the re-do will have to wait until I buy one. I'll probably put the whole thing off until next month.
That is called the learning curve. The first time don't expect stellar results right out of the gate.
Before you do it again practice on the underside of your sink covers and if you can't get it right consider getting a pros assistence.
Remember that in your motorhome the Corian will usually be thinner than in a home to save on weight so you will not have as much reserve thickness if you make a mistake.
