Cape dory typhoon adventures.
Chris, first time I've seen your bow plate finished like that! How did you clean it in place? Ketchup or Vinegar? I was just thinking the other day about soaking a towel in vinegar and wrapping the plate, letting it do its job for a few hours then using the Permalac spray on it. How'd you do yours?
@William McCoy. I did it in place back when I redid all the rest of the bronze. Cleats and all look about like that. I did it with 300 grit sand paper, my dremal tool 3M pad attatchments and sanding disks. It is no small under taking to get that shine. The original casting has a lot of texture you have to sand out. I did it in place then permalaced it. I think I did try ketchup but with the casting texture it really comes down to some serious elbow grease.
