polish/cleaner/wax

anyone got any recommends for a polish/wax for black gel coat? Want to do my seat pods/consol which are looking sad and neglected-but at least I do blend in well when I'm sat there at the moment!

To really do a 'number', I'd use 3m Finesse-IT compound. You'll need to apply it with a machine polisher with ideally a 'super-mop' head. It'll make a godawful mess and will need to wash and hose the whole issue off after. Then, when dry, apply a decent GRP polish. Unless the fading/oxidisation is particularly bad, this process should bring it up like new.
