Re: Restoring Awlgrip Paint
10 years is the max lifespan to expect from AwlGrip.
If you roll / tip clear coat, over a chalky worn out surface, (after prep), it will shine again, but not consistently.
You need very good working conditions... Dry, low dust, Over 55 degrees all day / night, or at least during application, and then cover the boat to keep the dew off of it.
It takes two people, a LOT of skill, and a huge amount of expense and work.
I find spraying much easier than roller tip, but you need to know what you're doing. The application guide book is 3/4" thick, btw!
Unless you learn on something else... I suggest that you save your hundreds, and hire a pro, if high quality results matter to you. Then, skip primer, forget clear coat, and just spray two top coats, (assuming a smooth surface).
