Clear coat scratch repair????

Post by Luke G » Thu Aug 11, 2011 4:33 pm

Hi all,
Just purchased a 2nd hand Nitro and was wondering what the easiest and most effective way is of repairing shallow scratches. They are superficial but just wondering, will they polish out??? I'm new to glass boats so any help would be appreciated.

Luke, you should be able to rub them out with wet/dry sand paper (make sure you keep it wet), you may need to start with 1500 grit and go down to the finest grit, then use some cutting compound and buff out the rest then a good polish, just keep an eye that you dont go through the gelcoat.
