that was my first application after spending quite a bit on a set of NOS
hoods at an excellent LBI on a visit to Madison. It is an excellent visual restorative on older hoods, they become a bit slippery however. This was only a couple years ago.
The only endorsement based on experience is on plastic and fiberglass kayaks used in both salt and freshwater. It makes a HUGE difference on longevity, UV effects on the water is diabolical. One issue however, as
I have taught and done fiberglass/epoxy repair (from boatbuilding experiences), is that it is a bear to remove as it does not encourage finish adhesion. I have a couple of nasty solutions for that, but this is getting way off topic.
btw, many marine supply stores sell it up to gallon containers.
