I sanded (dry) my platform with 150, then 220 grit and applied Starbright Gold to my platform over the weekend. It looks great and is drying in my garage and the temp. is maybe 45-60 degrees in the garage. Do I need a heat lamp to get the oil to soak in, or just time? I think in a few weeks I will wet sand w/ 400 and do another coat of oil. I am not going for perfection, just a good looking platform that performs well and holds up. When people "wet sand" with soapy water, what kind of soap is recommended? any other suggestions based on where I am now, and where I'm heading? Sun is not an option as it hasn't been over freezing wher I am for 21 days straight.
