how much nuvite?

Hi there, just getting ready to strip and begin polishing a 21 foot 1972 globetrotter with light/medium oxidation. Do I need 1 lb containers of the different grades of nuvite (F7, C and S) or will 1/2 lb jars do?

When we did our 19-foot '64 GT, we used 1 lb of "G6", 2 lbs of "C" and 1 lb of "S"...your results may vary ~

If you want to cut to the chase...3m's 'Gravel in a bottle' is a great way to make your first pass. It's in a large bottle and is very low cost, last a long time. THEN switch to your nuvite finishing polishes to finish out. You will save a lot of money this way, as nuvite is $$$$$. Do your home work

F7 is great all around polish - it starts agressive and gets finer are you polish. - I would order 1 lb of F7 and S to begin and maybe a 1/2 pound of C. If you order from perfect polish, there is no shipping expense, so get the minimum and you cal always order more later...

Remember to use SPARINGLY - a dab will do ya...

Just my thought
