Thanks Kevin!

Was hoping I could just top coat with the hi-gloss Dan, are you sure it's necessary to remove the existing sealer? I may not bother if that's the case. Odd I haven't heard anything...

Thanks for the suggestion Kevin, but the nearest dealer is a decent drive, two hour ferry ride and a border crossing away.
