    4588 brightwork

    Just finished all brightwork. Toe rails bow pulpit, cockpit top coaming and new padded coaming.
    3 days on frontend & 2 days on cockpit. Jasco 15 stripper on pulpit & cockpit. The toe rails were done with sanding only. Two coats of Cetol with 2 coats of 4-1 Chrome clear coat. 80, 120 & 220 sand. 3-4 hours each day. Looks great! Whew!
    Then my wife noted the teak entry wall and slide door! Yikes! But she did it as a touch-up. Looks pretty good.
    Bow pulpit & toe rails are covered in canvas. Cockpit has full enclosure. Should hold up for 3 yrs.

    I get to go after mine over the next couple months. I’m going to have to figure out an enclosure to keep the rain and dust off.

      The dust can be minimized with vacuum equipped sander(s). I used a Octo palm detail sander w Velcro on sand paper. It has a filter trap and with lots of sanding papers & vacuum, it did the job.
      The chemical strip also greatly reduced dust and eased sanding.
      As for rain, it never rains in Southern Ca. My biggest problem was falling ashes from the fires!
