Faded blue stripe

Recommended Posts

My 2003 230SSi is in very good condition, about 660 hours.  Overall the gel coat looks in good shape but the blue side stripe has started to fade.  Is there anyway to restore the luster of the stripe or is replacement the only solution?

Thanks in advance.

Replacement. 

Find a vinyl shop to copy create a new stripe.

 Depending on how bad the oxidation is,I would start with a light buffing compound like 3M`s Finesse or similar product  mated to a foam polishing wheel.  Then buff off with a wool pad . You don't want to hit it heavier than is needed. What you remove you cant replace. You can always go back with a heavier cutting compound if needed.
