Applied one coat 2 years ago, heavy traffic, faded and has wear.
1A) use RAD or the stripper
2A) apply RAD/Stripper with scrub brush & power washer?
3A) how many coats needed after RAD/stripper
4A) planing to re-stain every 3 years, will it always need RAD each time
Applied two coats last year, wet on dry resulted in shiny finish, also has white streaks assuming it’s sap leaching..
1B) will white streaks wipe off with mineral spirits? Will mineral spirits tarnish surrounding stain?
2B) how do I apply wet on wet? Do I apply second coat before it dries (and can I walk on) or mist with hose next day and stain?
3B) to get ride of shine, use RAD then 1 or 2 coats of stain?
4B) can bug juice Ben applied after fact or must it be mixed with stain

-Clean and brighten for prep with the Gemini Kit and pressure washing. Apply two coats of stain. You always have to prep when recoating.
-No, you cannot remove sap with mineral spirits. Nothing really works well for this.
-See here for wet on wet. https://www.twpstainhelp.com/twp-stain-wet-on-wet-application/
You cannot apply TWP to a damper or water wet deck.
-Use the RAD Stripper to remove the over applied shiny TWP. Brightener after then dry for 48 hours. Then two coats wet on wet after.
-Bug juice has to be mixed into the stain.
