Replying to:What goes under the varnish and where to get it?
Hi, we are fixing up an older wooden 125, and have sanded off much of the old varnish. Some websites recommend a layer of epoxy or CPES before varnishing, but I can't find anything similar in the shops. What should I buy and where can I buy it? We live in Canberra. Also, some of the fibreglass tape is coming up. I don't want to remove it because one side is very firmly stuck down and it is only one side that is coming up. What could I stick it down with? Any tips for us novices would be very welcome, Frances
