buckhorn_cortez, thanks for the suggestions. I’ve used P&L 38 satin extensively and love the finish it imparts, but it is not formulated for UV protection. If I apply it over the P&L Vitralite spar varnish on the door frame my guess is it would not hold up and I’d have to redo it in a couple of years. Epifane Wood Finish Matte is their urethane product with UV protection and a matte finish but my concern was applying it over a different manufacturer’s product – I’m probably being overly cautious.

As for the door itself, if I go ahead and get some of the Epifane urethane (not cheap) I’ll probably apply it over the P&L 38. Sanding first is a good tip.

Here’s a pic of the back door and frame – just got the door back up yesterday.
