1. Wet sand (If necessary)
2. Compound with Captain's One Step using a rotary buffer and wool pad
3. Polish with Captain's One Step using Flex 3401 and foam pad
4. Apply LSP
The actual order would look like this,


1. Wet sand (If necessary)
2. Compound with Captain's One Step using a rotary buffer and wool pad
3. Polish with Captain's One Step using Flex 3401 and foam pad
4. Chemically strip the gel-coat to remove polishing oils.
5. Apply LSP





Hang tight for answers to your other questions...
