Hi guys, On the weekend someone graffitied our relatively new fence. The posts were powdercoated with Dulux in monument. I managed to take the black graffiti off with methylated spirits and isopropyl alcohol, but it's dulled the powdercoat. By dulled I mean less shine and looks like a shade or two lighter than the original semigloss monument. Is it possible to restore it back to original state? Can this be achieved by polishing it? What product(s)/process would you recommend? Thanks! NB: No clear coat applied, just semigloss Dulux powdercoat.
