The clear will never be stable, if it has had that much sun life.

The job you are doing, I would only take the clear off, just not worth the risk of re-coating and you end up taking all of it off a year later, when it looks like dried mud.
Barry, he came out yesterday to see what I was talking about and brought the materials he used...the one thing missing was the activator for the clear. You are DNO with this. Thanks a bunch!
