I started with a small corner section. I applied the Citrastrip and let it set for almost an hour. I may have put it on to thin, it appeared to have dried. When I removed with water and a scrubby sponge I could see brush marks from the application. Also, there is still a section that is very white. So another coat. Better but still lots of white. I tried a buffing compound on a sponge and it turned very black. So am I not leaving it on long enough? Too thin? Should I cover with plastic. This will take me a life time at this rate!! I don't want a shiny mirror result, more of a mat finish after I wax. Thanks.

PROBLEM: Still working on my '93 31' Excella. It had red WB club numbers that have been removed but a shadow still shows. I have used critistrip and paint thinner to get the residue glue off and you cannot feel the numbers but they still show the shadow.
QUESTION: How do I remove the shadow or do I have to wait until I get to the buffing process.???? (and will that work???

I'm almost to the numbers. Gonna be a problem here I'm sure. I'm not planning on buffing, I want a satin finish. So after Citrastrip I've been goin over with Bon ami then going to wax....
I may be stuck with shadows.

For the ghost numbers try something like Goo Gone first then a Brillo pad then polish.
