Dear Simon,
Many thanks for taking the time to speak with me just now. It was extremely helpful and very much appreciated.
For the benefit of others:
1) Shellac was used as the finish to the table & bulkhead woodwork.
2) Evo-Stik was sprayed on to fit the carpet/sidelining. SAF111 would be suitable.
3) Emulsion paint was the finish on the plywood locker lids.
Please do correct me if I have got anything wrong.
Many thanks again for helping me with this.
Kind regards,
Martin.

* Dear All,
Does anyone know what the original specific products were used for the following and what would be the closest alternatives if no longer available?
1) Varnishes for the cockpit bulkhead and cabin table? I am wanting to use the same product as the original to re-coat a number of items such as the table (picture attached). Whatever is used will need to be compatible with the original product/finish.
2) Adhesive. I am replacing the cockpit and cabin carpet sidelining. What is the best way of removing the old adhesive and what specific adhesive was (should) be used for fitting the new ones? Some products suggest they are more 'permanent' than the others hence my caution. The original carper comes off relatively easily.
3) Locker lids. Those in the cabin and the cockpit (including those with carpet on) appear to have some kind of paint applied to them (picture attached). Does anyone know what that original finish is and what would be a good alternative if the original product is no longer available?
There is a large array of products available which is a bit bewildering to a novice like me. So specific brand names would be very helpful. I would like to use the original finishes where possible.
Many thanks in advance.
Kind regards,
Martin.
