Many thanks for all your help. I have ordered all the stuff I need from http://www.cfsnet.co.uk
. I will get some Gunwash and I intend to start next weekend. I assume that for the initial sanding, it is ok to use an electric sheet sander.
I have bought a few books now which seem to be pretty good. The sequence I intend to go through is as follows:-
Clean hull with acetone/gunwash
Initialy sandown using 60g sandpaper with an electric sander to break the surface.
Fill in holes with a resin based filler with embedded glass fibres.
Fill in scratches with Gelcoat filler.
Level off by hand using sandpaper 600g.
Apply a coat of un-waxed Gelcoat using short pile roller and leave for about 3 hours.
Apply a second coat of un-waxed Gelcoat using short pile roller and leave for about 3 hours.
Apply a third coat with wax and leave for about 2 days.
Sand down by hand going through the grades starting at 240g down to about 1200g and then rub and polish with Farcela G3/Advanced Liquid.
I will let you know how it all turns out.
Many Thanks to you all.
