2) Wash Away Excess Dirt and Stains
The second step involves using our concentrated Nano Wash to eliminate excess dirt and stains. It removes dust, oils, salt, and contaminants without harming protective sealants. Remember to:

- Use 2 caps of Nano Wash for light dirt and 4 caps for heavy soiling.
- Start from the top and work your way down.
- Avoid hard bristle brushes to prevent micro-scratches.
- For stubborn dirt, let Nano Wash sit for a few minutes.
- Dry gently with a microfiber towel.
3) Prep the Dock Box Surface
For long-lasting protection, proper surface prep is crucial. Use our Surface Wipe – it quickly removes oils and contaminants. Use these steps for success:
- Test it on a small area first to check compatibility.
- Spray or wipe Surface Wipe on, then buff with a microfiber cloth.
- Don’t use it on vinyl or paint protection films.

This prep ensures your dock box maintains its pristine appearance and integrity over time.

1) Pre-Wash Surface and Remove Excessive Staining
Start the dock box restoration with a crucial step – the pre-wash. It’s the foundation of the entire process. Use a strong degreaser or heavy-duty detergent to tackle tough stains and grime. Afterward, thoroughly rinse the dock box with water to ensure no cleaning residues remain.
This pre-wash sets the stage for the full benefits of our restoration treatment.
2) Wash the Dock Box Inside and Out
In the second step of restoration, thoroughly clean your dock box inside and out with Nano Wash. Add 2 to 4 ounces of Nano Wash to a 5-gallon bucket of water. Use a soft to medium brush to meticulously clean the entire box, removing dirt, salt, and stains. Once cleaned, dry it with a microfiber towel.
This guarantees a clean surface while readying your dock box for the next stages, ensuring it shines like new.
3) Buff Away Sun Damage & Scratches
To restore your dock box’s surface to its former glory, start with a spotlessly clean canvas. You want it to be free from any lingering dirt or contaminants. Use the Nano Compound with a machine buffer or a Dual Action Polisher with a medium-cut foam or wool pad. Here are some key tips:
- Maintain medium speed and apply medium pressure for the best results.
- Ensure the entire box has a smooth, uniform finish before moving on.
- If you notice lingering oxidation or fading, don’t hesitate to repeat this step for optimal results.
With this careful buffing process, your dock box is on its way to regaining its pristine appearance. Enjoy dock storage free from the effects of sun damage and surface scratches.
4) Polish Dock Box Surfaces
In the fourth step, we’re elevating your dock box’s appearance. We use Nano Polish with a machine buffer or Dual Action Polisher. They have a light cutting/polishing foam or wool pad. This step isn’t just about aesthetics; it efficiently removes swirl marks and minor scratches.
Polishing ensures your dock box not only looks great but also maintains a flawless finish throughout the season. If needed, don’t hesitate to repeat the process for a pristine result.
5) Decontaminate Oils and Residue
In the fifth step, we use Glidecoat Surface Wipe to ensure a pristine surface. For safety, wear protective gloves for the rest of the coating process. Apply Surface Wipe to a clean microfiber towel and wipe down the areas for coating. For the best results:
- Consider repeating this step to ensure the surface is impeccably clean for the next phase.
- If the box has excess dust from the compound preparation, use Nano Wash before Surface Wipe.
This meticulous decontamination ensures your dock box’s surface is in perfect condition. Now it’s prepared for the final steps of our restoration process.
6) Protect with Marine Ceramic Coating
In the final step, we bring expertise to safeguard your dock box. We use Marine Ceramic Coating, which resists corrosion, chemicals, and UV rays while restoring color, gloss, and hardness. It’s hydrophobic, repelling water and dirt for easy cleaning.
Here’s how to apply it:
- Use 5-10 drops on the provided Application Pad.
- Apply to a 3’x3′ section with light to medium pressure for complete coverage.
- Let it sit for 30 seconds to 1 minute until it beads on the surface.
- Buff it in with a microfiber cloth, applying moderate pressure.
- Use a second cloth for complete coverage.
- Repeat across the entire dock box, overlapping sections as you go.
With 2 coats, it keeps your dock box fantastic for up to 18 months. Curing takes 24 hours, so avoid washing with soap for 7 days. If it rains during curing, dry the box with a microfiber cloth. This final step fortifies your dock box with lasting protection and a brilliant finish.
