Recently bought a Rogers Fullerton black Strata kit.
The wrap is very dull and flat.
Cracked in a few places and has been glued back down.
Can anyone suggest a process that might brighten up the finish.
Any advice is greatly appreciated
Thanks

I don't own one but I have seen a lot of people get good results using a small hand held buffing wheel. I typically use Novus number two on the finish as well. I'm guessing you would have to just go slow and be careful.

I would do it by hand. As you noted, it is extremely common for all Strata wraps to have micro-cracks. I use McGuires PlastX found in the auto section of your local WM or equivalent. Essentially the same effect as Novus 2, but cheaper.

My Blue Stratas all have micro-cracks, but they are well-adhered, and run with the grain, so they blend in well. You can get excellent results.
