Finished the Poli-Glow on the exterior

I spent the day using this two part treatment on the fiberglass exterior. I didn't use it on the painted portion, just the white section and the graphics. First I used the deoxidizer and then applied 4 coats. That was all I had enough of but it gave the exterior a new gloss again. It was easy to use, just time consuming. I'll post some pictures tomorrow as it is dark now.

Just wanted to let you know that it works great. The graphics also look new again.

I bought some for my trailer and never used it. But I was thinking about trying it on newly acquired MH.

Very interested in your opinion of the results before I try it.

Looking forward to your pics. I was thinking about waxing mine, but this sounds better.

His posts is where I learned about it. I attempted earlier this year to wax the white portion and it wasn't liking it at all. We have rain right now. Suppose to keep raining until Thursday so the pics will have to wait.

Abnmarine I am glad that you have finished the application. You will now see the benefits of your labor. The first will be the reflectability, second the fact that the coach is dirty and you do not notice it as much.
I also think that it is easier to apply then wax, no real rubbing, the product does the work.
This time next year you will entertain the idea of applying two new coats after a good washing.
I would guess you had second thoughts after the second coat and saw the streaks and the third relieved you mind, the fourth is clears it all up and the finish has returned.

I agree 100% with you on this product. Thank you for your earlier review as it informed me of it. I wasn't worried about getting the shine, I did however worry if I'd have enough to complete 4 coats as the 4th one really made it shine. I wonder what another 2 coats will do? My coach is 32 ft and I only applied this to the top 2/3's of the sides as the lower is painted and holds a great shine with just wax. The bottle they provided was just enough for the 4 coats.

Well it stopped raining long enough for me to look the coach over. I'm sadden to say there are two small places where the coating is peeling. I felt that I performed the steps correctly and it was dry long before the rain began. Tomorrow should be sunny.

Regardless of this I'm still glad I did this as it did improve 98% of the coach.

I think if you use the cleaner for the spots and then reapply the coating it will take. Very light. Make sure you wait for good drying

You will also see any holidays when you look from different angles, just add a thin coat to each area.

I might just try that. I'll need to order another kit. I guess this time I can complete coat #8.

Here are some pictures. It's still overcast so the lighting wasn't optimal.

I have been trying poli-glow for the past year. My main complaint is that when you look at it at a 90 degree angle with the sun shining on it, you can see the stroke marks. At present, mine looks great from any angle other than directly on.

I even cantacted Poli-Glow and asked if I was improperly applying it. There didn't seem to be any errors on my part, but, they did send me a different applicator (shami). This has helped some but the stroke marks are still noticeable under certain conditions.
The coach definitely stays cleaner and is easier to clean.
