I still have a bit more work to do tomorrow. Need to wash it down. I noticed a few areas where the paint was a little thin. Darn bad lighting. I'll touch that up in the morning. He picks it up tomorrow at 2:30. Then I'm going to go look at something. Something I've wanted to get for about a year. Will be a great addition to the shop.

It really wasn't hard Bill. The right tools make it easier. however, with so much rot, it was a pain.

Being that you can't bake the paint. How long should you wait before wet sanding and making it turn to a mirror shine?
