Here’s a quick, and short update. This morning it was 6 degrees below zero. In the shop it was 39. I wanted to finish the hole filling, but couldn’t until the shop warmed up. So I started a fire, grabbed the sander, and started in. I used 80 grit paper. The object is to remove all the epoxy except what you put in the holes. If you don’t get every little bit it is OK because later you will be putting on a coat of the same stuff (I’ll explain when the time comes). So here are the two pictures I took of the area where I have sanded.
As you can see in the first picture it doesn’t look like I did anything. In the second one you can see the two dark lines where the strips meet. These lines are the epoxy that filled the gaps there. They kind of stand out but will blend in much better later on. This isn’t much of an update, but it’s all I have for now. When I get back at it there is more filling and sanding to do. I don’t think there is any need to post more pictures of the same old thing. I will update when I get them all filled and sanded off. I won’t get out there tomorrow, so the next post will probably be Friday or Saturday. See you then.
