(1) This being the third (or fourth) application, would you recommend prepping using the stripper kit or restore a deck? There its some build up on the inboard sides of the deck that don't see a lot of rain, plus some darkening or graying on the weather sides of the deck.
(2) The half gallons left over from the 2016 application were sealed well, and the stain appears to slosh around easily in the cans. In one of the posts below I noted that you thought that leftover stain in previously opened cans only lasted six months. Should I buy new stain for the 2019 application?

2. Open up the cans and make sure there is not any gelling, clumping, or excessively thick material. If not and it mixes 100% smooth, you should be okay to use.
