I don't know if this will work but adds for rust-olems Recolor. The adds brag about it.

I just did my 2012 faded cap with Zep floor wax from home Depot.
I can't believe how good it now looks.
Zep also has striper if I ever need to remove it in the future.

DWRAT, did you use the "wet look" Zep? And how faded was your cap? I have a well faded cap and trying to decide which product would work the best, there are so many suggestions it gets confusing!

Yes, I used "Wet Look" Zep.

At first I found a wax that actually made the cap look pretty good but that only lasted for 2 weeks. (3M Marine Restorer and Wax) No other wax I tried did anything at all to the cap.

A month later I rewaxed the cap with the 3M and then put 5 coats of Zep on.
My cap now looks like new and it's been 3 months so far.

A key part may or may not have been the 3m restore wax???

Thanks DWRAT, I may try that combo on mine! I'm trying to get a hold of the right person at FR to see if they'll repaint it for me, it's only 2 years old...in the mean time I just want it to not look like crap!

DWRAT, did you just wash the surface before waxing, or did it require special preparation?

I just hosed the dust and bugs off and then waxed it.
Then I Zepped it after watching a video on you-tube on how the apply Zep.
Couldn't have been any easier.
