Need help here!! I am currently refinishing the interior fly bridge of my 1965 46' Chris Craft Constellation and have not been able to decipher the stain that was used in this area... there is an area on the strbd canopy top (looking up) that has a fairly good representation of the finish that I would like to match (if possible)..... does anyone know what this might be.... ??
Thanks for responding Greg...... I have done a sample using Sandusky's Chris Craft Golden Walnut .... it doesn't appear to be close.... however... again... due to aging... it should lighten up to this kinda reddish brown color huh? Have you seen anything done in Cordova? And if this was original.... I don't think Chris Craft would have "mixed" Stains... so it either the Golden Walnut or Cordova.... maybe if I did a 1:5 washcoat first it would lighten it up enough?
Thanks guys for the help...... I have made the choice ...... Golden walnut it is!!.... all is prepared...... since I am outside (covered slip).... I am going to have to wait till next year as the humidity is a bit to high.... dew point is upon us so will apply next May or June..... wish you all well..... I will be spending my winter rebuilding my Gen-set lol
