My other question is why a year after did it do it? Sorry for the questions but the more I learn the better I will get at it.
Realistically it simply took that long because it wasn't out much in the sun? Because the clear simply lasted that long before it "gave up". This is one of the reasons why I love it when a guy says "I do it and it works", that is fine but do you see it years after you have done it? That is often a whole different story.
