This morning I scuff sanded all the parts with 320G, then applied the Seal-a-Cell to everything. That needs to dry over night, so I was done for today on this project.
Here is a pic of a portion of the front rail with only the TT dye:
This is the same piece after the Seal-a-Cell.
I can’t see any difference in the pix, but it looked good while it was wet. Tomorrow should be really interesting to see what it looks like after the gel stain is applied.
