ok, i started on the next set. I spent 6 or 7 hours sanding and got the first coat of epoxy on today. You can see in the last picture that it went on a little heavier in places than I would have liked. It soaked in completely some and bubbled in other and was just lumpy elsewhere. I will give it a good sanding tomorrow and get the second coat on then several coats of EMC clear after that.

Now the front door. I am quite pleased with the results. I hope this EMC lasts a long time. I really want to forget I had to do this.
