  • Onix Rocket gloss finish - Help !

    I have an Onix Rocket Sub UFW-10 that I use with 760s, and bigfoot RS-200.....that I really like the sound of - but has cosmetic problems on the black high gloss finish on both the top, front edges, and bottom.

    The black high gloss has sratches and some "mottling/spotting" grey spots/marks.

    I'm not sure of the cause, but cleaning with a wet cloth doesn't do anything.

    Also.....It doesn't look like a manufacturer defect.

    Before I tackle this with automotive rubbing/polishing compound and a high speed polisher -----

    Does anybody have any suggestions on how to improve the finish back to the high gloss black???

    here are some pics of the problems:

    You will be amazed what that will look like after a good polishing

    You might want to start out with some ultra fine sand paper and then move onto the polisher.

    I have cleaned up a bunch of UFW-12's that way.
    The finish is pretty thick, but dont get to carried away

      Thanks !

      do you also recommend using normal automotive polishing compound?

      Or is there something better to use?

        I have had very good luck with the good old 3M and Meguires products
