    How many top coats have you done? Might need to do a light wet sanding session with 1200 grit W & D paper to take it back far enough (not too far) for stains to do their thing.

    It's had 3 coats & yes was thinking light sanding with 1,000 grit. Hadn't thought of wet sanding though. Good idea I think. I think it's dry enough to start sanding this arvo. Watch this space for results

    Yes DT does take a long time to dry, but it also feels “clingy” for a while, even when it is cured. It kind of needs a bit of playing smooth this out.

    3 years on and the DT finish is still quite fragile on both Explorers, even under many layers of Tru Oil. Must take forever to harden up.

    Minor victory!
    Manged to rub off the final coats with out going through the veneer.
    Started with wet 1000 grit but found it wouldn't touch it so went with 400 dry & finished with 800 dry. (Also the veneer started to lift during the wet sand. Luckily it has settled as it has dried)
    The neck & back of the body I attacked with 400.

    Will leave it to dry from the wet sanding for a few days before I try the base coat.

    Have applied 2 coats of Dingo stain. 1st coat went ok but took 2 weeks to dry even though the weather is warming up. The 2nd coat went on a week ago. This one seemed to sit on top & even has some small runs in even though I tried to keep it thin. I was thinking that I would apply an intensifying coat next but I'm concerned that it may not penetrate. Any advice?

    Fickle stuff......looks like it will need more time between coats to cure properly.

    If you are getting runs in a stain coat it sounds like there was too much stain in the second coat.
