    All I can say is if you use Deft-thane, put that sh*^ on outside in the open air. If you use it inside, you and any living being will be high as a kite for the next three days. Put on the two part acrylic urethane finish that you can get at auto paint stores.

    Pull-it, I Have Re-done About 4 stocks recently And Have found Out To Use The "Clear" Of whatever type Of Paint you Used To Do The Stock. They Make Clear In Enamel, Acrylic,Lacquer And Verathane. Important Do Not Let The "Coats" Dry Completly Before Adding Another Coat. JMO Joe W.

    I use semi-gloss spray polyurethane and use an electric hair dryer to flash dry the surface. After multiple coats, I let it sit for a month and then "cut and polish"...
