(Granted we are in the desert where the sun is WAY harsher than a lot of other climates (aka east cost etc)).

Overall its a great product and I have no complains about the WB helmsman, I'm glad they actually came up with it as it helps us keep everything in WB family.
Thanks for the info, WC. Will have to check it out. Alot of times we are preparing things to live under porches, like in Tommy's picture. WB should be evolved enough at this point to withstand that and more. Good to hear from someone who is putting it in extreme exposures.

I'm curious because most manufacturer's recommend strongly against using dye or dye stains in direct sunlight applications.
No we have been using mixol same tint nace mentioned earlier in this thread.
