This is a Canadian Sleigh I just finished for a customer. The body had many cracks that I repaired with wood strips and 2 part marine epoxy. The original paint had to be heated with a propane torch to soften it so it could be removed with a scraper. I painted the runners and the body with Epifanes paint from Holland (Yaught paint) I finished with a couple of coats of spar varnish.

Awesome. You did a wonderful job. I redid one almost 40 years ago. It was a challenge, but very rewarding.

Thanks for sharing.
