Buffing Faded Exterior

My (black) W&P is getting pretty oxidized, especially on the front cap. I assume everything is gelcoat? Has anyone compounded or wet sanded their rig to get rid of fading? I have a high-speed power buffer and some experience compounding oxidation on boats... Any tips?

Do not wet sand the cap, just compound and 3m and a high speed buffer. I took some paper like 2000 grit on a little spot and it took the gel coat off be careful and that was by hand only no pressure at all. I was told to wet sand it first. WRONG advice.

You might check a product out called Shine On. Here's a link.

Shine On Online

The guy has a youtube video on the web page where he demonstrates the product and it looks like it does a pretty good job. No idea how well it does long term. I have never used it and I don't have any affiliation with this company. If I ever have fading or oxidation issues on my rig I would be inlcined to try this before I start buffing on it. I'm in the car wash business so I have experience buffing, just not on fiberglass/gelcoat.

I was curious if you've been able to use the Shine On product yet and, if so, how did it work?

I ordered a sample leprechaun magic pack, see how it works?
It seems it's like a type of pledge type wax or something ?
