I will post this here also, but I do have a discussion above to tell us how you did yours,

I made my own stain from acrylic paint, and sanded the worn sections to smooth over to good areas.Then applied my homemade stain, I then put Polyurathane, high gloss over. I waited a day and applied a 2nd coat.

"I'm a bit surprised you need to replace the bearings on an 2008. I've not heard of any issues other than early model 43s required a brace be installed at the quadrant. Actually the issue was discovered by Franc who happens to own and run…"
