I will have to strip the red max pro #3 off of the dark green decals. It seems to flake. Only place with a problem so it will be fixed I hope after we arrive back to Wash St soon. Looks good for the 2nd winter in Az.

I am set to give it a shot...

have all the products, as soon as the snow clears and stay clear enough for me to get it done.

Was thinking about doing the hardtop on my Jeep Wrangler, since it is fiberglass, should not be an issue.

What are you using to strip it with. I need to strip a small place on my RV where it didn't bond well, mostly where the decals are

What product are you using to strip the Red Max Pro #3 with? I have a couple of small spots that I need to do over.

My best guess is I will buy the stripper for the product. I will come back after I do the job. Might not get it done before May.

Be careful guys, if it will strip the polish it may strip the decals.

Wow! I can't believe I read this entire thread in one sitting! This is some good information. I am still in the middle of my interior renovation, but I can grant you that I will do the Zep treatment as soon as I can. Thanks for the pointers.

Cool UV protection

Red Max #3 - its an interior product so unlikely that it has any UV protection. And does it matter with a fiberglass shell?

Thanks ... I don't think you can ask more of a product ... fantastic !! Started mine 2 days ago (doing it in 4ths). The difference is quite remarkable. After about 4 hours (in 88 degrees) of work I still walk away grinning.

Had a few minor issues today and have a few tips (they may have been mentioned):

1) max working temp seems to be about 85 degrees ambient. Dark colors get streaks very quickly at that temp.

2) change the microfiber applicator rag frequently .... as soon as it starts to feel stiff use a new one. The stiff rag will begin to deposit crystals of dried Zep on the finish.

3) if you don't finish and need to use the spray applicator again, empty contents, wash in fresh water and pump it several times ... if not, it will clog overnight.

I'll get a much earlier start tomorrow ... it was 84 by 10am at the storage facility in Fl. I attempted to work up until noon and wound up needing to do touch-up.

I decided this is the best way for me. Wal-Mart sells favored water for 68 cent a bottle. It is a tough plastic bottle. Drink the water and rinse out and dry. Do the same on a 2nd bottle. Pour the product you are using in the clean bottle. Take the cap and drill a small hole in it. Now turn the bottle over and spill into the micro cloth. when done for the day use the 2nd bottle cap to save what is left in the 1st bottle. This worked better for me than the spray bottle I bragged about earlier.

I'm thinkin' I'll drink the water, pack everything up, and go to the beach

Seriously though .... I'll give it a try.

BTW, Home Depot gives 10% discount for vets thru Memorial Day weekend ... might be the time to pick up more Zep products and microfiber rags.
