More varnishing

While I was sanding and varnishing the new parts, I decided to clean up these original parts. I think they are seat rails, but I have not identified them individually yet. I took one of them and sanded off the old varnish....

...and added a fresh coat of varnish. Like the original copper end?

Here are some of the other parts that were sanded and given a first coat.

The lower longeron was sanded and given coats two and three.

Also, the wood in the control bellcrank was given a coat of varnish.
