BoardSMITH says French polishing? Has this guy ever done that? Done right it is very time consuming, but you’ll build up the thumb muscle in your hand really good, if that turns your wife on, go for it. LOL I’ve been using and recommending Automotive catalyzed urethane for a long time, great build up, the equivalent of 10 coats of laquer, done in 3 coats of auto urethane. Higher costs, but what is your time worth? Superior finish and think of it’s wearability, what does a car go through? UV protection can’t be beat, and nothing harder and more durable. You can get an off brand on ebay for about $100.00 that gives you 1 gal. clear, and 1/2 gal. activator, so your getting 1 1/2 gal. of material. Drying time to sanding is about 2 hours at room temp. some even less. As little as 20 min. if heat is raised. Hope this helps.
