Ryan and Blake show off their newly restored door.

Ryan and the Rebuilding Exchange’s Blake Sloane take to the RAM Truck Workshop at the Rebuilding Exchange to refinish a sad, old door without any sanding, stripping or hard chemicals.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Rubber gloves
  • Denatured alcohol
  • Restor-a-Finish
  • #0000 steel wool
  • Cotton rags

This is how you do it:

  1. Lightly scour door with steel wool and denatured alcohol.
  2. Wipe on Restor-a-Finish using cotton rag.
  3. Wipe excess Restor-a-Finish with clean cotton rag.

It’s a simple project that makes a world of difference. It took just 15 minutes and about $5 worth of supplies.
