Yours is very close Stef as it is...you could!

Maxwell is actually overdue for a touch-up - Birdy has been getting all the attention the last year and a half ~ his turn is coming...

I left a question on another thread "Stripping clear coat" about what I should do with my 74 Land Yacht. It is showing white "splotches" through the clear coat and I had to cover it with a tarp to stop a leak last winter and it has left some kind of residue or marks. (The leak is fixed now) I've tried rubbing compound and it shines it up a little but does not remove any spots. It sounds like a lot of work to polish it after stripping so I'm not sure that is the route I want to go. Lazy I quess. What can I do?
