Remember that the board depth is what's important, so if you just go far
enough to make the flash fall out, that's perfect.

After a short while, the remaining flash is so thin that you can

the time it takes to clean each slat space individually, this method
around 15 to 20 minutes per side, and leaves a "crisper" looking

distracted by the six year old. Apparently, my sanding hand just kept
going, and when I looked back, I had sanded right through a couple of
boards. Of course, I think I will just make this into a car BADLY in
need of new boards, or I may just cut the board out completely. add a
new one, and make it look like an on-the-road repair <G>.
