    I used it a few times on GRP boats. Went on easily enough but was very powdery when it dried, which was real pain. Results were OKish but no better or worse than 3M products which I also used. The application let it down big time.

    EDIT - similar to using AG super resin polish (the one with red writing IIRC), which also dries to a powder if over applied.

    The powder you get when it dries are the fillers in the polish. Use a detail spray to remove the dust.

    When i hear the word 'MER', i get a strange urge to get a red Mini bonnet, draw all over it in felt pen, put a soft tar onto it, squirt lighter fluid all over, then set it on fire !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    It is qiuite good. But there are a lot of better products out there. I used to use it a lot on my Vectra B, and was very pleased with it. Just that it make a lot of dust when it dries.

    I think I was stood behind you at the demo .. Used it for some years & still have half a container so looks like it's Mer for a little while yet ...

    I used it once and it left a smearey finish so it got launched to the back of the garage and never used again until my daughters ex-boyfreind saw it and mentioned how he liked it but had ran out, so it now has a new home.
