So I bought a sheet of paper backed makore (baku) veneer to redo the wood on my 64. It seems like the original has a urethane clear coat. What's everybody using for a final finish? I have plenty extra to play with, I think I want to start with an automotive clear urethane, but what is the norm? It says "hand-rubbed in the advertising, which would lead me to think it was lacquer, but lacquer thinner tests make me think they used urethane.
Glue suggestions would also help, I'm starting with weldwood but is there something stronger? I've used weldwood 1000x on laminate and fabric, but never metal to wood, it will work, but I'm open to suggestions.
Thanks in advance
