Yes, I masked it all off before I sanded it. I statred with 600 grit and wasn't getting anywhere so I moved to 400 and it seemed to do quite well. Try not to sand over the rubber and sand long ways with the wood strips. But take the tape off before appling teak oil. The oil and the glue off the tape make a nasty mess.

PM me your e-mail and I will send you pics of what I did if you like.
