I have a CompTip mast and the CompTip portion is looking faded and scuffed. Does anyone know if there is a recommended way to clean it up and restore the original sheen?

Thanks,

Wayne

The CompTip outer material is basically, Gel Coat. You should be able to use a rubbing compound or polishing compound to return some amount of black shine. Depends on how deeply oxidized it has become. Worst case the gel has worn thin and is showing fiber. That would require a paint. Epoxy or Vinyl paint.
