I ABSOLUTELY SUCK AT PAINTING AND I HAVE SEEN SOME GOOD DEALS ON 90 HP ONES THAT ARE IN REALLY GOOD SHAPE THE BOAT IS GOING TO BE STORED UNDER A SHELTER NEXT TO MY DAD'S CC SO I AM TRYING TO GET THE BOAT LOOKING GOOD.

Alex,

Have u try a 3M OXIDIZED polish compond bottle? It's like 50 bucks and use a high speed buffer with 3M compound will remove the most of nasty stuff. Then leave it very shiny like a brand new motor.

JROCK did a amazing job on the blue highsider.....PM him and he will tell u what bottle....I forgot.

My 2 cents....

yeah we have tried everything and what is happening is, it is bad that the paint comes off with the oxidation lol.

I have spent a total of 3 days cleanign the boat up after i got it with waxing and fixing some wiring that at this point i am tired of waxing for now and willing to just find a good used somewhat inexpensive cowling lol.

WS, that compound is for gelcoat, it will eat the paint off a cowl in a second. Two different materials.
