I have to agree with Crist, his merchant skills are terrible. It very clearly says on his web site that he will make any labels not listed. I have requested two from him now that were not listed and both times got an email back, after two or three requests from me, saying that he is too busy to make them. As far as I am concerned he should take his site down if he has no intensions of meeting his customers expectations. I did buy one of his reproduction photo finish kits and it most certainly is better than nothing but a little more effort on his part would have produced a really nice product. The grain structure on mine looks like the camera was out of focus.

Yesterday and today have been spent on applying the sealer coats along with the initial clear top coats. Hopefully tonight I can apply the decals and continue on with the top coats.

I shot 5 coats of Mohawk DuraCoat Pre-Catalyzed Semi-Gloss 60 Sheen Lacquer #M614-24607 thinned 20% with Mohawk Lacquer Reducer 2255.

I waited about 10 minutes between coats.

Later on tonight I did a little wet sanding to see how things are turning out. I used 800 grit wet sandpaper dipped in water and Dawn dish washing soap.

I wrapped the sandpaper around a hard balsa block and did a little sanding on the hatch.

Here is how it looks when it is sanded a little bit. Notice how "rough" the surface is and how the sanding starts to "level" the finish.



Here is the same spot after a few more minutes of sanding. Notice how it is nearly all the same sheen? The finish is "leveled" and ready for the next coats.



Lots more sanding on the whole cabinet before the next coats. Of course after sanding, I'll put on the decals and continue on with more coats.
