I just got done putting 4 coats of Zep on the rig and it looks like it's going to rain. How bad will the rain mess it up?

Rain never bothered mine. It looks as good as the day it was done.

I doubt it will have any effect, even if it's still tacky. *If* it has any effect, at all, the next coat will cover it.

By the time you went in to type your post, it would be dry .

Yep, five minutes or so is all it takes if you are doing the thin coats. Looks like you are doing a great job. Saw an add today for a product that is probably the same as JEP and costs 19.95 A QUART!...Go figure...but wait..you get a 10 cent towel..and an extra bonus blue sponge..

I posted months ago that I saw other floor finish products that might do just as good at one of those stores.

Thumbs up

Some really nice results there restoring a nice shine.

Quick question: I just jumped in here and have not read the entire thread but has anyone done this on a fiberglass boat hull?

If our motorhome has a nice shine then our boat needs to match. LOL

Yes, you can google 'Red Max Pro #3 on a boat' and find many links to people that have been doing this for years. It is a cheaper alternative to Poliglow and report great, long lasting results.

People were doing it on boats long before people started using it on RVs.

Count me in on those who wish they had heard about RMP#3 when he had a Ranger Bass Boat that had the metal flake actually flaking off. on both counts.

Latest information from this red max pro #3 installer. One year ago I did the red max. Today I washed to do another application. Washing with dawn soap it was like washing slick glass. This told me the product was still on. the shine was still there so not surprised how slick the sidewalls were. I applied one coat before the sun came around to that side as I am doing one side at a time. One more coat but I really don't think it will look any better than awesome as it looks at this time.

the reason for this message is on the first application I used a round product for applying wax and dipped it into a shallow pan. the problem was the dip was more than was needed so I had to watch for runs. doing the front and back of a MS fifthwheel in April I used a spray bottle that at that time I thought was the real deal untill I saw my glasses had red max on them.

Now I am using a flavored water bottle that was 68cents at wally world that my wife drinks. it is a strong bottle so with a small hole drilled in the cap I pour some red max onto the micro cloth and apply. I feel this is the best methrod for me.

It drys fast enough to keep applying it until you are done. Chevman
