Proper Protection

It is imperative that the musical parts of the piano be protected while refinishing.  The plate, strings, soundboard, key bed, and underside of the piano can not be subjected to removers, solvents, or finish overspray.  The action is removed and put in a safe place. The plate and strings are protected with multiple layers of paper and cardboard.  

Carefully, the piano action is removed and stored in a safe area.

Tape off and protect plate and key-bed.
