Default interlux perfection shine.

Probably about the life span of that paint. You could try some rubbing compound and then wax to see if you can bring a shine back to it. Try a small spot and see.

If it's really stained wiping with paint thinner brings it back

I have no experience with perfection at that age, but from what I have read its not supposed to be buffed because the gloss(?) rises to the surface when you paint it. Again, I have no experience with perfection at that age, but it is very hard paint and you can probably hit it with 320 grit then another coat and it will be like brand new. Try buffing it out first maybe wet with 600 then 1000. All else fails cut it with 320, prep it with acetone and a tac rag then roll perfection on.

At 10 years I would rub back with 320, mask up, and roll/tip a new coat on. If you only have to do that every 10 years I would be pretty happy. If you have no damage and are just laying on a new top coat over a scuff back you should be done in a day.
