Beginning to sound like we should have found this ZEP Question and Answer. It sure makes it look like the closest thing to a "no" one could expect about using it.

My old gal kinda looks yellowish normally... LOL
My basement doors are the only place that don't match the rest of the MH. What would the Pros do? Any one refer me too a place to have it done in the Mpls Mn area?
Thanks,

Tim - only on the now gone Titanium was Poli-Glo used and for good reason. Other then that, it's Meguire's and a handful of towels. I don't even use my buffer as it's a 10 pounder pro level car version and for a 38 footer - big time pain.

Why not find a couple neighborhood kids who would do it for some gas/game bucks ( yeah, I know, they have become close to nonubtanium since the advent of smart phones, etc )

Nope - That's what I used on ours and its holding up excellent. I have read that people use both. Just pick your days so you have low winds and low humidity. I was lucky and was able to do ours over a three day window start to finish with perfect weather. Try not to apply in direct hot sunlight either.

Thanks! Can you apply to the roof as well? Or just give that a good clean?
I'm hoping to do this before rainy summer in FL.

I'm excited to see my older rambler come alive!

I know others that have applied it to their fiberglass roofs, I decided not to. I spent a couple days and compounded and waxed ours. Figured Ill do it each spring.

It really is. I was blown away. You can literally only see half of my car which was parked several feet away

It will do the same on your striping I had to go over the striping (decals) with bartenders friend to get it all off. Other than that its super stuff to use.
