NuFinish to Zep convert

I did all the prep work on the MH which was the toughest part. First I used Dawn dish soap to remove old NuFinish then Bar Keepers Friend to remove oxidation. Did a section with NuFinish and right next to it I used 4 applications of Zep. WOW, what a difference! The Zep left a mirror like finish and was much easier to apply than the other. Will be removing the NuFinish tomorrow and redo with the Zep. Also, I was going to paint my mirrors because they looked so bad. No need after the Zep, they look new! Love this stuff!

Excuse me, but what Zep are you talking about.

There's a Zep company that makes a full line of industrial cleaning products. Construction companies that specialize in smoke removal also use their products.

I especially love Zep orange degreaser--for all my cleaning needs.

The Zep factory in North Atlanta area burned down last week.

I applied the "wet look floor polish" with a microfiber wash mitt.

You might want to purchase your lifetime supply of Zep because the future of the company is questionable after last week's fire destroyed production.

I purchased the last gallon at the Home Depot I shopped at.

Zep application

Prepper 2 I hope you had a rubber glove on when you used the mit to apply the zep. I just finished a refresher coat on my 1996 Allegro first refresh in almost 3 years it was still looking go but I felt it could look better and it does. I just converted a good friend of mine we did his 1994 brave and his eyes just lit up and so did his coach. Keep then shining

It is floor wax. I finally gave it a try on my coach roof since it I had read so many of these stories about it. I put three coats on my fiberglass roof after giving it a good cleaning. The roof looks amazing, I have no streaking on the sides of the coach.

I'm in the middle of the process to Zep my roof. Did the Bar Keepers yesterday morning to get the surface nice and clean. Zep makes a floor sealer and since the roof seems like the fiberglass may be a bit porous I applied a first thin coat of the sealer in the afternoon. I plan to do a 2nd thin coat of the sealer this morning. I got the Zep High Traffic floor wax that I'll start applying this afternoon. Looking forward to getting rid of the streaking on the sides.

The ZEP manufacturing plant did not burn. Zep is located just south of Cartersville, GA on HWY 41. The plant that had the fire was a chemical supplier to ZEP located in Marietta, GA. ZEP is alive and well. I've driven past their plant several times in the past couple months.

The finished product... looks great to me. Hoping that takes care of the streaking for several years to come.

Looks great. Others using this on the roof have said it will last at year or two before you need to re-do. I know that when I had go on the roof of my coach at a large RV park recently, I looked around and I had the best looking roof in the park . I guess only the birds and me can appreciate that.
