Hi Danny,

Great results! Did you do any surface prep before applying the stripes? What about for the gel coat restorer?

Hi Ian, I just measured it. Looks like 2mm. I worked in arm reach lengths. Reach out, pull towards you on one side of the groove then reach out and pull towards you other side. Then I got experience and did three runs. One towards, one push back the other way and then a third towards. Trick is when you enter the slot to hit it right or you get a blob on the edge. The three stripe method had the advantage of just one entry. I think the paint I used was perfect. It flowed well.

Hi Bill. Paint was recommended by my marine painter of many years experience. Isotal enamel single pot tinted to as close as I could to original. It flowed really well.

This looks amazing! What paint did you use inside the Buegler tool?

Hi all. See the attached photos. I have recently finished restriping the deck followed by gel coat restorer. My heartfelt thanks to those who advised me about the buegler striping tool and the product for gel coat restoring. I was amazed at how user friendly the striper was. No masking needed. Great result. The gel coat restorer I applied in less than an hour with a rag.
