stain or dye them,,,not topcoat.
this is to prevent glue squeezout from inhibiting the stain or dye
from penetrating your panel.
that said, i don't do it this way. i have yet to glue a panel to the

The masking works good. Be sure to use a good quality painters masking
The reason for prefinishing the panel is to prevent unstained edges from
