Well guys, you'd be pleased to know the jobs a good 'un.... in fact I've really impressed / outdone myself!

I got a couple of drips with the lacquer which started because I think the can was faulty and it started 'spitting'.

Anyway, once the first coat had dried, I used a bit of soapy water and 1200 wet and dry to very gently rub them out - very very gently.

Have since done tow more coats of lacquer and have left it to dry.

A slight down side is that, even though it felt dry to touch, I got a thump print in the lacquer now as i tried to pick it up! It won't show as it's on the underside but you live and learn...

Will post some crappy pics off my mobile when I fit it

Thanks to everyone for the advice.
