I see your problem- your brightwork schedule is too skinny.
8 coats. if you put on 8 coats you will get at least two seasons out of it, whereas with 6 or less you are lucky to get one season. So, two more coats means doing it half as often.
well, you have ruined my weekend!
well i am going to spread it out! nothing wrong with that right...a few coats a week?
