Modern Conscience All-Purpose Restoration and Maintenance Kit (Wax-Based)
HardwarePasteWaxFinishKit.jpg Modern Conscience All-Purpose Restoration Kit. This fantastic kit includes everything you'll need to condition fiberglass, wood, leather, metal, and plastic. This is the same paste wax we use in-house and it's an essential in the restorer's tool kit.

This kit is also a must for routine cleaning and conditioning. Use it to keep your priceless collection in gorgeous condition.

A half pint of our paste wax, instructions, wet sandpaper, dry sandpaper, an abrasive pad, steel wool and lint-free cloths are included. Each kit includes enough product to handle several pieces of furniture, such as a set of eight dining chairs, a dining table, and a credenza.

Modern Conscience Wood Restoration Kit (Tung Oil Finish)
HardwareTungOilWoodRestorationKit.jpg

Modern Conscience Wood Restoration Kits. These handy little kits contain everything you'll need to restore the wood finish on your classic pieces. These are the same products we use in-house. The kits contain a 1/2 pint of either raw tung oil, tung oil finish, or waxed base solution. We all three methods for such restoration in-house. These are all industry standards for wood finish conditioning and restoration. The tung oil finish will require fewer coats to quickly achieve a medium gloss. While a wax based solution gives the restorer more freedom to build a finish ranging from matte to gloss over more time with several coats. Raw tung oil requires the most patience with several days long dry time between coats and lots of buffing required.

Instructions, sandpaper, steel wool, and lint-free cloths are also included. Each kit includes enough product to handle an average restoration for four to six chairs. If a more aggressive restoration is required plan for the kit to handle about two chairs.

Modern Conscience Fiberglass Gel Coat Restoration Kit (Solvent / Oil Base)
HardwareFiberglassGelCoatKit.jpg

Modern Conscience Fiberglass Gel Coat Restoration Kits. These handy little kits contain everything you'll need to restore the gel coat on your rough or dried out fiberglass shells. The kits contain a 1/2 pint of either oil and solvent based solution or waxed base solution. We use both methods for such restoration in-house. These are both industry standards for gel coat restoration. An oil and solvent based solution will require fewer coats to quickly achieve a medium gloss. While a wax based solution gives the restorer more freedom to build a finish ranging from matte to gloss over more time with several coats.

Instructions, wet sandpaper, an abrasive pad, and lint-free cloths are also included. Each kit includes enough product to handle an average restoration for a set of four sideshells, or two armshells. If a more aggressive restoration is required plan for the kit to handle about two sideshells or one armshell.

Please note that oil and solvent based gel coat restoration products will tend to cause a slight yellow tinge to lighter colors of fiberglass like Parchment and Greige. For lighter colors we recommend our wax-based gel coat restoration kit.

Eames Fiberglass Cleaning Sponge -Pack of Two Sponges
HardwareEamesFiberglassCleaningSponge.jpg

Eames Fiberglass Cleaning Sponges. These sponges make cleaning fiberglass easy. They are pre-impregnated with a gentle cleaning solution and have a strong cleaning power, with a gentle sponge texture to prevent damage to the gel coat. Using them is as simple as wetting the sponge with water and cleaning up your seat. Once you've tried them you'll never use anything else. They work best on fiberglass which requires medium to heavy cleaning; fiberglass with severe damage to the gel coat will require restoration as opposed to cleaning. The sponges also work well on other plastic and resin furniture and components.

General Purpose Abrasive Pad
HardwareAbrasivePad.jpg

These general purpose abrasive pads can be used for polishing fiberglass between coats. They can also be used in more intense fiberglass cleaning applications. Be aware that their abrasive nature means that the original fiberglass finish will be scuffed and the gelcoat will need a few more finish coats after this pad is used for cleaning. For more gentle cleaning that doesn't abrade the gel coat please see our fiberglass cleaning sponges. This abrasive pad can also be used to clean metal, again with the warning that it is highly abrasive and will scuff shiny or polished metals such as chrome. Each pad is 6"x9".

Steel wool can also be partnered with WD-40 to clean metal and remove pitting. Be aware that steel wool is an abrasive; too much action on a shiny finish like chrome will dull it. Each pad is approximately 3"x4".
