    Default Faded motor

    I have 20 years of sun fading on my motor. Any magic potions to bring it back? Don't expect original, just better.

    yes take a few pics. Here's why, I have a 1980 'rude 100 HP when I got it it was VERY faded. I took pics to have a record of what the decals looked like, sanded it down a little and repainted it as near as I could to original. Then I ordered new decals from a place that sells them and replaced them on my motor. Right now I don't have the name of the place, but when it's daylight and I get out I'll get it off the decal they sent with their name on it.

    If it's not faded too bad, you might have some luck wetsanding and buffing. Worth a try at least.

    If it is totally degraded down to the aluminum, or cracked on the cowling, you're better of repainting.
