Stop fekkin about. Wipe it well with standard thinners (gunwash) and slap 3 coats of Klear onto it. Job done.

Did mine last year, cleaned well then applied Stoneglo (could not find Klear).

It has worked very well. There is no cracking and no evidence of it rubbing off.

I agree with J.Walkers advice, Thinners followed by klear worked well on my old boat. I used klear on my old orange humber a lot and never had any problems with it cracking or peeling off? The only problems i had were thet after 2-3 applications you'd have to wash all the old stuff off or it got gunky. I now have a polyurathane tubed Tornado that needs little or no cleaning
