"No sealer is required.  If the Zar is true oil based finish you can always cut the Zar with paint thinner and create a sealer.  Not an issue, I do it all the time, especially when i am doing touchups. Yours Randall"

"Do a search in your area for salvage places.  You could donate or sell them to the salvage old house parts type place.  Or you could just use craigslist or the marketplace on Facebook."

Thanks!! My dad actually just texted me the same salvage place! I'll be contacting them tomorrow to ask what they think and see what they have or could get in stock.

Also your tiny house looks like it has made an amazing transformation thus far. I'll be following it on Facebook! Good luck.

Thanks again for doing a search for me! I'm new to the "restoration" and old home community. I know I want to stick to original as much is possible, but I have very few resources or knowledge of what's even out there. So glad communities like this exist.
