So far the finish procedure has been ok, some difficult moments but I have worked around things so far. I have to say this is really one of the most satisfying things I have ever built. It is very time consuming, every detail has to be either block sanded or done with your fingers and a small piece of abrasive. And that is done repetitively, I will probably have close to 20 sandings by the time this is ready for polish.

  • One coat Behlen's Vinyl Sealer, 1 hour and then block sand to 400.
  • 3 applications of Bartley's Neutral Wood Filler
  • One coat of Behlen's Vinyl Sealer, 1 hour and then block sand to 400.
  • Mixed TransTint orange into Behlen's Vinyl Sealer and did one coat, wait 24 hours and then block sand to 400.

I will be spraying nitrocellulose laquer today and tomorrow. I would like to burst the front but that is a challenge. I think it would look awesome though.
