When cleaning graphics and wraps, polishers should be avoided. These harsh tools will degrade images and decrease their lifespan. Owners must cover the entire graphic, including corners and edges, with blue painter’s tape when using a polisher to wax the surrounding areas.

Shurhold’s Serious Shine protects wraps from fading due to harmful UV rays. Owners just spray the lettering and graphics and wipe it on and off with a clean microfiber towel. The more Serious Shine is used, the better protection is provided and the longer it lasts.

Shurhold’s Serious Shine is the perfect one-step detailer. It cleans, polishes, and protects virtually any solid surface in one easy step, leaving no greasy, artificial residue. This unique formula provides high gloss and a UV protective coating that also repels water.

For help cleaning the gel coat between the letters, Shurhold’s Buff Magic is best. Formulated to be user-friendly, this compound should be worked in by hand in these tight areas. With each pass, the proprietary abrasives in Buff Magic break down smaller and smaller. This effectively

creates a compound that can work a finish from very dull to ultra-glossy. A 14 oz. aerosol can Serious Shine retails for $17.98, while a 22 oz. tub of Buff Magic is $28.98.
