I'm not sure how many out there have run into the problem of trying to get that deep shine on fiberglass that has been dulled by the sun to a chalky kind of look and no amount of waxing gives it that deep shine. Well I had that problem on my plane and a previous camper. No matter what you did there was no way to get that deep shine. I read this on line and it worked great for me. I used Zeps High Solids Floor Finish. It truly did give it that wet look. On the plane (Which is hangered now) I put 2-3 coats on about 4 years ago and still looks the same as I first put it on. The motor home now has that deep shine. Most of the issue on it was the front and end caps. It brought them back to life.

To put it on I used a microfiber cloth to apply the wax using a front to back motion, then let it dry and that's it. Now if you have a good shine now, I don't know if I would do this, but it worked for me...
