3M #1 with a final finish buffing pad Lots of work but maybe a better option
I don't believe the marine paint part. The front cap is fiberglass same as a boat or car. My front cap was painted 3 years ago. Epoxy primer, automotive base coat clear coat. Looks as good as it did when painted, No chips, peeling lifting nothing. Your friend needs to talk to a good paint supplier and get the real story on what to use. My rear cap was painted 2 years ago at an automotive bodyshop. Same thing. Buffing and polishing will last maybe a year and it will be just as bad again. Most of the major manufactures now paint the caps. Full body paint jobs have been around for years also. They still look good many years later as well.
