I started with a small corner section. I applied the Citrastrip and let it set for almost an hour. I may have put it on to thin, it appeared to have dried. When I removed with water and a scrubby sponge I could see brush marks from the application. Also, there is still a section that is very white. So another coat. Better but still lots of white. I tried a buffing compound on a sponge and it turned very black. So am I not leaving it on long enough? Too thin? Should I cover with plastic. This will take me a life time at this rate!! I don't want a shiny mirror result, more of a mat finish after I wax.
