    I was thinking that too. I've done some with the tree in the middle. That's probably a tough commitment to make. Thanks Roger.

    Nice project!
    LOL, good eye. We use a ton of them. The price is better at the Homer than what MAB/SW charges.

    Thanks, Dan. We got caught in a rain storm when cleaning them at the end of a day and even 24 hours later it was a pain. God Bless Windex (two full bottles used cleaning these panes)

    Thank you, Terry. I'm not a big fan or larger projects like this because of the manpower needed to get them done quickly and the potential problems but its good to know I have enough experienced guys and the learned skillset to deal with them.

    Ken, did you apply the second coat the same day or next day?

    Usually it is the first day of course. On this deck and with the rain, we had to come back to do the final floor coats.

    You do have to be careful on glass because of what is considered MFG defects. If that glass has this defect it can cause scratches if you use a razor blade to remove the stains. Only happens on tempered glass.

    I have had sucess getting stain off of vinyl siding from a previous application using Krud Kutter.

    Was that Super Cedar?

    I have never done a second day 2nd coat, always have been afraid to. Doesnt the dried stain repell the second coat and keeps it to the surace?

    On your same day second coats... Do you apply a light first coat and then apply a heavier second coat or vice versa? how long do you usually wait in between coats?

    I have allways battled shiners. Wondering if I am missing something. Maybe I do need to put the wood resto breakout session on my priorities at the convention.

    Pat a 50/50 blend of SC and SC Dark.

    I was very sketchy around the glass. I walked from guy to guy to make sure they were not causing damage. Its was all soft oil so the hardest part was getting rid of the streaks and making sure the oil was gone.

    Krud Kutter rocks and is my go-to chemical for all that is spot removal.

    Ken,

    We have been using Krud Kutter for so long we should have our company name tagged to its stock market ticker. It is a really good product. One dip hole that worked for my Grandpa forgot to cover some antiques when he was painting a room and it was covered with sprinkles. Even the fabrics, but with the door shut, locked and someone manning it, we cleaned it quickly and safely.

    The job looks awesome. I love the jobs that have 5 star difficulty because they are going to be charged fot exactly that, but the high risk also brings high rewards when completed.
