Just found this RV/Marine questions and answers page at the Meguiar's website. It does not talk about graphics though.

go to a marina & get some paste "boat wax"...it's the best for fiberglass gel coats.

I agree, I use Star Brite Marine polish and it protects gel coat better than anything else I've tried.

{ On of the reasons I chose Rejex is we normally get into love bugs)

I thought LOVE BUGS is what they called my wife and I 41 years ago.

I recently waxed my Jayco Designer with Rejex. As my Jayco is only 6 months old, I can't tell you how it will affect the decals. I also store my unit inside so UV will not be much of a problem. The Rejex was easy to put on and take off. On of the reasons I chose Rejex is we normally get into love bugs in south Texas sometime during April when we visit there. The love bugs are supposed to have a body acid that is very hard on finishs. Rejex is supposed to repel these acids...time will tell.


If it moves but shouldn't, use Duct Tape. If it doesn't move but should, use WD40.

Is Nu finish still a top choice? If I recall it's synthetic, so is it decal safe?
Think it is still a top choice around here, but don't think it is decal safe.

FYI -
If you go to the 303 Protectant site, there's two application methods suggested
See -
"303 Aerospace Protectant
SUBJECT: Gelcoat Fiberglass Application"

Unfortunately, it doesn't say anything about graphics.

Sorry "ford-willy"...I should have used the proper term of Plecia nearctica so you and your bride of 41 years would not be confused with the bug I am talking about.[emoticon]

Just saw a '96 Foretravel that has only been "waxed" with ProtectAll. The thing looks like it just came off the showroom floor, decals and all.
