You can send the Blades in for Dura Skin, they will shine like new! I wax the sheet out of mine, seems to work good!

Has anyone had a issue with the dura skin fading because mine have. I called and they said to use rubbing compound then wax them but it doesn't work. It's a shame I paid all that money to have the dura skinned and it's right back to what they looked like before

I've got a ton of hours on my Dura-Skin blades and mine still look brand new. I believe they where done about 2 years ago and I ride a couple times a week....

Hey Terry
Been washing them with a car wash style soap and waxing them with meguiar's wax. I put a photo of one of the props but I forgot how to post it to the form. It looks like the dura skin is come off. There are lines on it to like its cracking. I have about 100 hours on them.

I have been buffing with compound. The issue I'm having now is that the dura skin looks like it's coming off. really didn't look closely at the props when they were on the AB but now I can inspect them closer as they are sitting on my table.

:violent1: JMO is a faded prop really an issue :scratch: I have a whirlwind that's faded over time 12 years and counting and works like a charm, it's like worrying about your polymer being scratched :lol:

I want my prop to look as good as my airboat does. I would care so much if my AB look like a POS but I spent the money to make them look like new and they didn't last like I was told.

I took them back and Darren said he has never seen blades white like mine so he is going to redo the...any yes it's going to cost me again. The thing that pisses me off the most is I was to get them back 2 weeks ago. The still have them and the said sometime next week. GD you can make 4 sets of them in 4 weeks

I have been doing that

Works great if you want to do it every other time you take the AB out
