    I posted some good links a while back. Try searching "wet sand" or "wet sanding" "gel coat". Good luck!

    I did it to my Outback. It was some serious work but I started in Feb. and would do a section at a time and buff it out. Get good quality paper and use it in the right order and you'll be very happy!

    yeah, get a random orbit sander, some paper and a few cold ones and bring the shine back to your ride.
