    Well that really turned out nice, with plenty of room back there that is a good option. I may have to follow your lead on that one.

    On your doors was it like a fake veneer in the middle or was yours actual wood? I've been wanting to do mine but wasn't sure what would happen if I sand them, mine is an 85 though.

    It is a vaneered plywood with teak trim around the outside
    I sanded but only hard enough to remove the old varnish
    be careful and use a light grit like 220 or you can easily sand through
    the grain....I did in a few spots

    Jim, You both have done a nice job on her. I hate that I won't get to see it in person. How's the roof coming? Best of luck and keep up the great work!
