Man this has been a long time coming. I have three current build threads going but I'm waiting for parts on the others so I started cleaning this. 95 XP800.

This thing was covered in tree sap BUT I think that saved it! The gelcoat is beautiful after a good scrub.

Soft scrub and a blue scotch brite does an amazing job cleaning and deoxidizing gelcoat from what I have found.

Look closely at the last two pictures. The second to last picture I hadn't touched the bottom pink gelcoat. The last picture is after hitting it with soft scrub and blue scotch brite.

This build is starting as my 95 xp 720 is finishing up. I have the motor parts but haven't put it back together because I'm waiting on all the parts to finish it first.

Check out the pictures. Decals are messed up in two spots. I have not decided if I'm going to peel them and get some replicas from pwcgraphics to make it perfect or clean it up and let it fly. Honestly probably order replicas.

This is just a quick scrub to make it to where I can actually work with it without being nasty. Honestly it really boosted the motivation to get the 720 done.

But without further ado.... 20190109_174012.jpeg 20190111_155657.jpeg 20190111_160415.jpeg 20190111_160419.jpeg 20190111_155701.jpeg 20190111_153347.jpeg 20190111_153357.jpeg 20190111_161821.jpeg 20190111_163201.jpeg 20190111_163505.jpeg

Love it. Great result there on the clean up. I'd let it ride. She's only original once.

I would hit it with Meguiars Marine High Gloss Polish then wax. The polish is safe for the decals too.
