Kiwi Grip Pics

Here are some results of the fininished Kiwi Grip non skid on an old and weathered topside turned out great for the cost and time.

Very nice job. Looks great. Let us know how it holds up.

BTW, my first off-shore experience 30 years ago was on a Corvette. Great boats.

Looks good. Don't supose you have any really close-up pictures? Was it difficult to keep the texture consistant?

I am finishing up my first season after applying Kiwi grip last spring. I was very pleased with the ease of application and the results.

General wear after one season appears very good. I did notice a few nicks and scratches from winch handles, etc. Supposedly Kiwigrip allows you to make seemless touch ups and patches. If that it is in fact true, I will be extremely happy with my decision to use Kiwigrip. I will let you know next spring how the touch ups look.

My close up pics would not download for some reason but the consinsity is easy to obtain depending on the amount u use and how aggressive you want the finish to be, I rolled right over the original dimond nonskid and is noticiable in some spots to my eye, but over all two thumbs up
