    ANYONE ONE KNOW OF A PLACE I CAN CALL OR GO TO THAT SELLS USED MOTOR COWLINGS? MINE IS SO BADLY OXIDIZED THAT WHEN I WAX IT I AM TAKING OFF THE PAINT LOL, I HAGVE GOT THE BOAT ALL SHINY AND BACK TO ITS ORGINAL SHAPE SINCE IT HAD BEEN STORED OUTSIDE THE PAST THE 5 YEARS AND I DONT THINK THE GUY EVER WAXED IT, LUCKILY THE ONLY THING NOW THAT IS BOTHERING ME IS THE WAY THE MOTOR LOOKS.

    A repaint will cost less than a new or used cowling.
    Most old ones are stored outdoors anyhow.

    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.
