Bad weather here has prompted me to dive into yet another platform restore. I have completed sanding, and have found yet another way to sand between the slats. The Black & Decker Mouse sander has an attachment for an extension that is perfect for this. I have used the linseed oil procedure before, and it worked well. Just to mix things up, I bought the Starbrite 3 step system. (Free shipping and no sales tax was the major motivation for this) Any caveats to doing this, or just follow the directions?

Just follow directions. Worked great for me, and lasted two summers if kept on a covered lift.

Before and After

My 1998 SportStar's platform. Here's my process...

Step 1: Sand with 80 grit.
Step 2: Sand with 150 grit.
Step 3: Blow all dust off with leaf blower.
Step 4: First coat of teak oil.
Step 5: Second coat of teak oil.

I'm very pleased with the results.

This platform was in dire need of some care. Thx to this forum I think it 's looking pretty good. There was a good bit of wear, along with gouges and grain separation. Started with an 80 grit belt sander, followed by 120 grit belt, and then 150 random orbit. Then two treatments with 75/25 Linseed Oil/Mineral Spirits. Brushed on, let rest for 30 mins and then wiped off. Gave another wipe about an hour later. Separated coat 1 and 2 by a week. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1360519790.172083.jpg

Thanks. Yes, only two coats but I did put those coats on pretty heavily. It took a couple of days sitting in the garage to fully dry.

They really do. The next time I have to treat mine, I'm going to try the 75/25 Linseed Oil/Mineral Spirits route. Starbrite works good but it is costly.
