New bow window was installed and I am about to polyurethane it.
The wall around it has been taped. The exposed material is
most likely aluminum or fiberglass (I can call and find out
tomorrow). Must I tape that too? Or can I clean that
afterwards - if so, with what?
1. You can apply the varnish without getting it on it.
2. You don't *care* if you get varnish on it
Yes, with paint remover. Will it damage the material? Not aluminum,
don't know about FG. The question is, could you apply it without
getting it on the varnish (not likely)?
BTW, the varnish is going to wick under the masking tape. Sorry...
Nooooooooo, don't poly the window, you won't see very well through it. Just
do the trim.
You'd be better off taping the exposed material. Once poly dries, it can be
a bugger to remove cleanly. Scraping is about the only thing that works.
Solvents won't cut it.
