I've got to sand and buff a little 1Ft by 1FT section in my gelcoat that the repair guy missed. He sanded down with 800 but didn't see it. No big deal, I've got some 1200 and 1600 grit laying around.

My question is, I've got some 3M Imperial 39001 Medium cut rubbing compound. Will this work on Gelcoat to pull out 1200 grit swirls?

Gonna be going over top of it with 3M marine finesse it. Actually going over the whole boat w/ the finesse it after. I just wanna know if the 39001 is safe to use on gelcoat, or if it will even work for that matter.

I've used heavy duty rubbing compound and then Finesse It to polish to get the real shine back. Medium Duty would not be a problem.

So the compound made for painted finishes will work for gelcoat no problems?
