Got some good tips already from the group on finishing a lam stock but one thing I need to know is how to darken the dang thing. Got my stock from Richards and its supposed to be red and black lam, but it came more in a grey and pink color!!!!!! PINK! so my guess is in the finishing it will darken, but I am looking for a product to darken it up more before i put the protective finish on. Or do I need to get ahold of Richards and see why my stock is Pink...... Why pink any color but pink!
