Did you worry about pulling the fumes into the skimmer or did you run the air intake to another room as a precaution?
Thank you,. but as I said before it really does look 100% better in person,..I applied a clear coat this morning and that put a nice little sheen to it,....re.air,..nope ,.just used a fan and big pwc
