Rough patch on roof's gel coat
I thought I would share this solution to a minor problem we had with our Escape. There were two rough, dull patches on the edge of our roof, one on either side of the awning. I hadn't noticed it before, but if you looked for it or ran your hand over it the patch was very noticeable. I worried that maybe the gelcoat was defective, but after showing Reace pictures of the patches he said that it appeared to be some glue or caulking that wasn't cleaned off after manufacturing. He suggested it would wipe away with solvent.
I tried a product labeled "Solvent" from Canadian Tire, but it didn't touch it. What did work fantastic was Goof Off. I didn't find any other reference to cleaning the gelcoat on this forum (though I may have missed this), so I wanted to share my finding. Goof-off is available in small tins as well.
