I have seen acid or products with acid like On-OFF cause this to the colored Gelcoat faux teak. I think if that is the cause there is no reversing unless you can remove just the top surface of the Gelcoat. If while trying the following you see white, you have gone too deep.


Gelcoat can be compounded. My European friends refer to it as polishing. Some people in Texas refer to it as polishing with rubbing compound. Specifically, the process I am talking about is actually removing the top layer of the Gelcoat. 


I like 3M Super Duty Rubbing Compound. You might also try 2000 Grit Wet/Dry Sandpaper

I have some spots where the color is gone from the faux deck, almost like drops of bleach hit it. Is there any stain that can be applied to restore the look?
