When I bought my Fiber Stream
, it was totally oxidized from sitting out in the harsh California sun... top, sides, front, back... as it did for many many years. I kept cleaning and applying Gel Gloss until I had built up a nicely smooth waxed finish. When it sits for more than a month between road trips, the front above the window shows the dullness as if all the wax was gone. The front faces south in my yard and gets full sun all day. When the upper front is dull, I know that the whole roof will be dull as well. The back and street side retain their shine the longest. The street side is next to a shed and gets no sun exposure.
It only takes one application of Gel Gloss to bring the shine back.
