    Dull roof


    No matter how hard I try I cannot get a good shine on the roof of my Duo Hi top . Ive tried many different types of polish but its still the same . It looks chalky and dull . Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you do .

    Thanks .

    Hi Dave, sounds like your roof is oxidised, I used Tcut to get back the shine and then polished but there is a special product for the job which Ant recommends. I have clipped the relevant bits from one of his posts

    If the van has an overall dull finish I use Farecla G3, this is
    specifically designed for GRP and must be used on a wet van,
    allowed to dry then removed. Having done that the shine will
    be begining to look quite good but can be improved with
    either a cream or soft paste silicone based wax polish, I have
    mine made for me but Farecla G10 is quite good and easy to
    get off properly. For dead flies across the luton I use another
    finishing wax ( also made for me) that is very high in silicone,
    the result is the flies don't stick and can be rinsed off.

            Would this work on my caravan, d'you think? Not GRP though.
