Anybody else had that problem and how did you fix it.
The first few coats usually show some streaks, but the easy fix is usually a few more coats. After 4-5 coats the appearance really improves.
(Spritz -each additional coat on one side of a 36ft Mh takes about 20 minutes, wipe on -no rubbing)
If it does need to be removed, ZEP makes a remover specifically for the acrylic finish. In other write-ups here, users reported it worked well to re-do an area where the finish had run.
I'm on the 4th year, same results as USMC1968 & FL-Richard, no yellowing on white filon and 2 layer recoat each year.

Really 20 minutes, I'll Bite

My is only 30 ft. I just might try it on the bottom section to see if I like it. I like the 20 minute deal.
Do you suggest that I remove the wax before applying the zep?
I remember back in the Army we used Kleer Floor wax and a cotton ball for inspections on our boots would that work.

Spritz: Preparation is the key, search for posts on how to prep. Need to remove prior wax/grease etc. The Zep is not a cleaner so if the surface isn't clean you will have shiny dirt. My 1st application, I did not get the top of the front cap prepped well enough, only area I had to re-do the following year.
Discussion here: Help with Zep

We Coasties used underarm deodorant pads (Arrid???) to coat our dress shoes for the "spit shine" look. (Don't tell the Marines)

[QUOTE=Fl_Richard;1936445]I've never seen even the slightest hint of yellowing - 8 initial coats, 1.5 years in Florida sun. Washed it twice since - still as shiny as the day i put it on. Will probably coat it again with a single top coat this fall.

Wax was never this easy!!![/QUOTE
