7 years ago......

you all saved my life.
I think I had a mini stroke today....

I am eternally grateful to you all. It's your own fault that you're stuck with my crabby old ass .....

Seven years? That was seven years already? Seems like last year. It's great you're still with us.

If it is an oil finish, i would wipe it down with alcohol let it dry then 0000 steel wool the top coat. Then rub some tru oil on it. Mold is hard to get rid of. You could also use a mild bleach water solution. Then proceed.

Like the others, I'm amazed at how quickly 7 years have passed.
Life is definitely better on this side of the lawn!

David!
The true joy would be if you learned to play something better than bass !

Glad you heard the wake up call. Seven more years on the good side of the sod.
Keep the tunes coming.
(Plus I'm really glad you cleared up the confusion I had when I read someone had green on his stock.. That was awkward for a second.)
Best
Les

Yeah, I was thinking penicillin.

David,

In truth, it was just a year earlier I lost a local musician friend to cancer. Keeping the tunes on earth seems to be a worthwhile endeavour these days.

IDK much if anything about gunstocks but they are wood, at least in Targa's world. What works for mold on wood can be several things. Boric acid, oxalyic acid and vinegar all come to mind. As usual, test on a small spot.

Bleach might work too, but it does have an effect that may not be desirable — lightening the shade of the wood.

Likewise on the survival of a stroke. Another 7 and another and another....

OMG!! Seven Years ???? I also remember it like it was yesterday. So glad you're still with us and hope you stay for many, many years to come. I think it's sort of an odd and unique thing so many people here have been around for soo long things like this seem recent.

Wow, time flies!
That was one of our most significant and memorable threads.
So glad we were able to give you the nudge needed to get to help quickly.

Yep your car threads in the mean time have been good. But you spoon restoration threads are my favorites.

It's good you are still with us David!

Cheers Richard
