What is everyone using to protect and shine your FR3

So many waxs and finishes on the market to keep your FR3 looking brand new. What are you using? What works best for you?

Since it's such a PITA I use Prolong super protectant. They are known for their additives but the protectant lasts for over a year. Expensive.

PART NO. DESCRIPTION PRICE (CDN $) COST/EACH CASE SIZE COST/CASE

60017 Super Protectant 17oz. (502 ml) 9.95 6 53.73
60128 Super Protectant 1 gal. (3.78 L) 44.95 2 80.90

These are Cdn prices and I buy direct from the distributor. They don't carry it in stores due to the cost and nobody buys, but this really works. Sorry about the formatting.

Extremebike, Thanks for the quick response! Is this something easy to apply? What do you recommend on how to apply?

I use this Welcome to Finish First Polish on my fiberglass. Easily applied and wipes of easily even after 24 hrs. Lasts all year and provides a great shine that little sticks to. Been using it on my Harleys for years. Works just as well on painted aluminum.

I use Shurhold's Pro Polish Wax. It's not cheap either, $22.98 - 16 oz. - $109.98 gal. You can sometimes get it cheaper on line from Amazon or Ebay. It's the easiest wax I have ever put on. I put it on with a micro pad and wipe it off with a cloth. No white powder, comes off easy, even after being on the surface over night. The first time I used it, I planned on using my 10" buffer, but it was more trouble using the buffer than applying it and wiping if off by hand. Because of my experience, a lot of my RV'ing friends now use the product. The product is primarily directed at the marine market, but it works great on my Rockwood 8315 BSS. Check the product out on their website, shurhold.com
