I was also amazed for 2 1/2 years until it all went bad. Never again! Dull is cool for now.

There is a stripper to remove it. And you keep saying that

Vol, "This method..." was that just a wash and an application of Zep?

The stripper is made to puddle on the floor. Put it on a wall and it flows right off. Have to apply, reapply, reapply and reapply in a small area. then it works. Don't be an expert on stripping the zep until you have done it. It is a bear. Stripper also eats any painted surface it comes in contact with.

Didn't think about it flowing off the wall that's a good point. However you don't have to sound like an ass. That part wasn't necessary

I have had occasion to use the ZEP/RMP stripper liquid. On a vertical surface. What I found workable was to soak a thin sponge in the stripper, wring out until it no longer drips, and then dab it on the surface to be stripped, getting it wet enough to do the work, but not so wet as to run off too much. It's a guessing game. But it will work.

Completed this on my badly faded 1989 Southwind we just purchased. I followed the directions to the T and am very happy with results. Just wonder how long it will last?

Wall58. I did the Zep process on my 25yr old trawler. After 2 yrs in a saltwater Florida heat environment, it still looked good. Put on another coat then, and it looked fabulous again. It does fade some, but is better than trying to wax a 44' boat each year.

I just bought a coach that has the floor wax on it. Guy said he did it 2 years ago. It looks ok, but I don't think he prepped it right? You can see dirt under the floor wax. So I guess I need to remove it. If I do remove it do I have to re-apply floor wax again or can I just try a regular fiberglass wax on it?

Just put another coat or 2 on top. It will last for a couple more years, you will have plenty of other things to do.
