Varnishing - turned out nice.

This morning turned out to be quite pleasant weather wise, so I got to work sanding the rear door panels ready for varnishing. With both doors prepared I opened the tin of Yacht Varnish and applied a coat to the first door. It goes on really well and brush marks disappear in no time leaving a lovely smooth finish. With the first door finished I happened to look up to the skies and there looming from the horizon was the blackest cloud you've ever seen. Quick, get it all under cover, and just in time, there were some big spots of rain, and that was all. So onward, and the other door varnished, and both fitted back in place on their hinges. They look good but they need another coat of varnish. I'll get it done over Christmas.

The photo doesn't do it justice.

I looked at doing something about replacing the draught proofing around the rear hatch, and I have a cunning plan neat idea! I'll order some bits and pieces and see how it goes.
