    Default Restore Rogers metalflake color

    Does anybody have any tips on how I can restore the shine to the Blue metalflake accents on my boat. I am very fond of the boat and want it to SHINE if it is possible. The interior is in nice shape and I think hull should follow along. Also I would like to try and find a Rogers badge in decent shape, mine is missing and I think it should be there.

    I want to thank everyone for all of the tips that I have been given so far and I hope to share some pics of the boat in the water doing what it should be doing.

    Wet sand with 1500, and polish. Lots of elbow grease, but you can usually get that shine back.

    If you can run your hand over it and feel the flake you can't buff it out. If this is the situation you will sand the plastichrome off the little flakes and be left with white or black flakes in some spots. Some guys clear coat it. It only will last for a few years though if exposed to alot of sun.
