    Anyone got any advice on cleaning the gelcoat on my 997M?

    I keep reading about special cleaner and then people saying use autoglym etc?

    I have successfully used this product on a very dull caravan about £22.00 for a 473ml bottle

    I too use Farecla gel coat restorer with wax. Excellent product that brings back the shine to a dull front end (on the Hymer).

    Autoglym super resin polish on the aluminium sides (white) and Autoglym bumper cleaner for the side mirrors (they are black) and door/locker lock plates and handles (also black).

    Farecla is a good product remember to wet it a bit if your using it with a power tool
    do not use any products that contain ammonia , this will give the gel coat a yellow tinge
