Hello good folks:
Although the car is an antique and is mainly used on nice sunny warm days, the trunk will still be out in the elements while driving. Yes, I have been caught in storms, windy days, some colder, some really hot 100 plus degree days ( btw, the car does NOT like 100 degree days).
A friend of mine says to use spar varnish, however I tried that finish on a cedar bench I made a couple of years ago and by the end of the first year is was showing major signs of wear. To be fair, the bench sits outside most of the year without protection.
Is there a finish that will be a little more durable for road use? The trunk will be used to cary “stuff” so it will be functional as well as a period accessory.
Your advice as always is appreciated.
