Just got finished with 2 coats of everbright. The hull is definitely shiny, but I have to say I am disappointed in the self- leveling properties. .the stuff dries so fast. I did call everbright to see if I can sand between coats, and you can to knock down high spots.

This stuff is somewhat thick so it goes on thick to begin with and then sags as it's drying.
Probably a green-horn mistake, onto something else.

I am Getting ready to use some everbright on the hull. I had a bunch of black smudge all over the anodized Hull. I thought I would be able to remove it with acetone when I first started I did a quick check. As I'm prepping the hull for the everbrite application I noticed the black smudge was not coming off as I thought it was going to. So I tried a little bit of Meguiars number 49 heavy duty oxidation remover and my wheel. I'm glad I did, it made the rough to the touch hull smooth, shiny and it cleaned up the black smudge. There's a couple of pics while I was using the 49. The 49 made a world of difference!
Not sure if you can see but from the bottle back is where I wheeled out the hull.


Another pic, I did the bow. Not saying this is the end all be all. But for me I am very pleased with the results.


I got my first coat of everbright on and man what a difference!

Steve, I thought about that, but not sure I have a steady hand. Have you ever painted one?

I hand painted this. Removed it, spray painted the whole thing red then, with a couple of very small brushes, painted in the aluminum color. Took a long time but it can be done.

Rick no solvents are working. I'll send you a pm tomorrow if I decide to go that route,thanks


Rick G. I think I am going to leave them the way they are. Thinking more about it today, Brand new ones might look funny on an old hull. I still need to apply everbright to the hull, very curious on how the hull will look after.

That looks awesome.
