Oxidation

Looking for suggestions on removing oxidation or can I just wax it. Getting it ready for new decals. It's all white.

My class c was that way when I bought it. I used Maguire's ultimate rubbing compound then Maguire's #50 RV and Marine cleaner wax. Didn't look too bad but looked a lot better when I realized that I couldn't wax the whole side but about 2ft squares then wipe it off. If it's not right when you step away keep going and try again. Also if your going to replace decals, I'd take them off first. Lots of work but well worth it

I have the easy answer AND IT WORKS!!! Buy "BUGS N' ALL"....it ABSOLUTELY WORKS on OXIDATION and EASILY REMOVES BUGS GUTS and SPLATTERS from your Vehicles, Rv's, Windshields.

I sprayed it on my badly oxidized Fiver, waited 15 seconds, wiped it off with dry cotton rag and it was GONE!!!

You mix 4 oz of Concentrate with 28 oz water in the 32 oz bottle they send when you buy the 32 oz bottle of concentrate.

Just believe....IT DOES WORK....EASILY!!!

And NO , i don't work for or own any part of this company....BUT WISH I DID!!!

LET ME KNOW HOW IT DOES.....

Oops forgot.....get it on AMAZON!!!

I have found that washing with a scotch pad that is like real fine steel wool and doing it 3 or 4 times will get it.

I would use 3M Finese it, with a orbital polisher.

Refer to post number 3....no steel wool or orbital polisher needed.

You'll have plenty of time left over for beer!!!

Thanks for all the replies. I found an old container of Protect All fiberglass oxidation remover in my garage that I bought around 8 or 9 years ago. I shook it up really good but it didn't really mix good. Anyway I tried it on a section of the motorhome and it removed the oxidation and left a shine, so I ordered a new one and will pick it up today. Right around 38 bucks, lots cheaper then any quotes I've gotten. 480 up to 1200. I'll take before and after pics.
