    i want to restore the finish on my PU Mosin Sniper

    Basically a lot of the shellac on my Mosin chipped off about 2 years ago when I brought it out in the extreme cold. Little did I know extreme cold weather is not very good on shellac finishes so I want to repair what came off.

    the absolute LAST thing i want to do is refinish the entire rifle so I decided to buy shellac flakes, dye, and denatured alcohol and I'm planning on adding the shellac only to the areas missing the finish. Would this be a good idea?
