Finishing advise needed

My dashboard is epoxied, varnished, (System Three) and installed. While struggling to install and blend in the curved pieces at the corners I got epoxy on the dash and had to sand these areas down to bare wood. My question is how do I refinish these hand sized areas? I'm sure I don't want to feather...

Zip Whimsy

This Hamms beer sign matched my boat colors so well I wanted to figure out a way to use it. Maybe too whimsical for a classic look, but maybe not!

Re: New Zip from MN (and NW WI)

I had a little dip where my side panels joined so I smoothed it out with epoxy mixed with white micro-spheres and a little saw dust for color. But not near enough color. Its smooth now but any ideas how to blend in the big white patch?

Thanks

I'm not much of a blogger but I've included a few photos. I am building the the Zip in my Wisconsin guest cab...

Re: Engine for Dyno Jet?

Thanks for the reply Dave. I think the next step is to go look at one and measure the drive train to make sure it will fit.

Engine for Dyno Jet?

Does anyone have an opinion on using the Rotax 900 ACE engine (60 hp, 4 cycle) out of a Sea Doo Spark in a Dyno Jet?

Thanks in advance.
