Evidently, it could have been packed a little better. I will say, there were no leaks, so that's a plus.

He also brought me a quart of Black Top Coat of Por 15. I want to play around with this a little bit. We'll see how it works out.

Spreadsheet update tonight hits a milestone. We finally crossed over the 10K bridge.

The gallon was an additional $137.19 off of Amazon. The quart of black was an additional $40.26.

Our prior total was $9872.50. Adding the gallon brings us up to $10,009.69. Bridge, crossed.

Adding the quart of black top coat, and we now have $10,049.95.

Hey, it's all downhill from here! Lol.

I got up early this morning, and managed to get a coat of Lacquer on before breakfast, and then this evening I added the third coat, so I think they are about done.

Next will be to put some finish on the counter tops.

That would look pretty good with some doors on it. [emoticon]

Not saying that is completely out of the question. We talked it over, and she wants it open for now. If it turns out that she doesn't like it, we can always add them later.

The beginning of adding Por 15 Clear on the passenger side counter top.

Nothing like a real high gloss shine. This was still wet when I took the picture.

Looked like the POR15 raised the grain on the walnut. Are you fine sanding between coats to get a glass like surface? Or are you just applying more POR15 to the previous layer? Brings out the color and grain quite nicely. Looks good.

He's using POR15 (a rust inhibitor) on his counters. He thinks this is more appropriate than coating designed for wood and you want to know if he is sanding between coats? If this guy is not actually a POR15 employee, he sure should be!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Well, you always sand between coats on any automotive finish, and POR15 is an automotive finish. Don't remember, but does the clear contain UV protectant?

Maybe he should add some ultra fine metal flake to one of the layers just for that shimmer effect.

Wonder what they mean when they print on the can "For metal substrates only". Guess he'll find out over the next year or so.
