I spent some time on the yard last year and asked the pros. The awlgrip at 10 years or so they say is about as much as you can expect, some places maybe more. Mine is dark blue so it will not last as long as some lighter colors. If it is hazy the awlcare will not help that much. If the awlcare had been used yearly or more it might have lasted longer. I watched the yard guys use 3m regular compound, then the finesse and then awlcare. It brought my 10 year plus shine back up. At 10 years the buffing is only temporary and you will need to consider re coating if you want the like new look. Buffing and awlcare will get you the OKAY look to get you by. Previous poster is correct about the outer shell. I would not buff a younger awlgrip but at 10 years what you will do will be an improvement. Awl Care after the new paint job will get you the most mileage out of it. I wish my boat's previous owner had used it.I'm getting by until I can re do it.
Don't use anything with silicone it in or you'll have a hard time when it come to painting again.
