That makes ALOT of sense,by saying it needs to be sealed,you mean make sure whatever you use ,seal the whole peice top,sides and underneath?..or some kind of other sealer to use under the clear?

I'm just wondering because i will be building another trailer with some 2x8's i have laying around for the floor and was wondering whats the difference in just using the old Polyurethane people have been using for years on wood/furniture vs the urethane clears for autos as far as having to seal it totaly to prevent bubbling from it gassing out?
