View Full Version : Aluminum Crestliner - What Product To Use???
Jul 12th, 2006, 07:11 PM
Could someone give me an idea of what to use on a 20' Aluminum Crestliner. The boat is about 15 years old but in good condition. I just need to know what products to use. Any help would be great.
I currently have a D/A Buffer and many of the mirror glaze car products as well.

Oh sorry I ment a painted aluminum boat. All the meguiars products i see, say they are for fiberglass or gel coated boats. This boat is and aluminum boat that was painted by the factory.
Here is an example.

I'm a mechanic/salesman/boat show detailer for a Crestliner dealer. I've been using the automotive product on the painted areas of the boat. Crestliner uses a baked on single stage paint, which is very hard, but keep in mind that there is no clear coat.
I've detailed a few older models for some of our customers, and they come up great when you use the five step sytem that others on this site mention.
