Author Topic:   CLAYING A MONTAUK ??
mbking1 posted 05-01-2002 10:42 AM ET (US)   Profile for mbking1   Send Email to mbking1  
Does anyone know if applying automotive clay to the gelcoat (like on cars paint) will pull the tiny impurities out to prepare the gelcoat surface for a final polish and wax application? The boys at my marina call me Mr. Anal in my efforts to keep my "Baby" spotless. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Mark

I would think it shouldn't hurt anything. I have clayed cars/trucks before. It does make a auto paint job very smooth and slick. I really never thought my gelcoat on my boat needed it. On a auto paint job You can really feel the impurities, but on gel coat I really don't remember feeling that? Try it. Let us know, then maybe We'll all start doing it.- ha ha.
