Board Building Project - HD Creeper 48 - Stage 8 - Clear Coat, Pads & Non-skid

Time for the final clear coat, sanding and non-skid.  I will keep a matt finish which shows the weave when wet - just like the finish on fins.  My non-skid was late night inspirado and I already don't like the waistcoat looking front - this will change down the track.  Also had a bit of trouble with the non-skid fisheyeing over to 1200 finish underneath - another experience for the memory bank.  This will be the last clear finished board I do, opaque sanding coats are so much quicker to finish.

 Clear coat, none under the pads to save weight.
