    Lightly Sand, wash with teak cleaner, coat with teak oil. Pictures might help get you some suggestions.

    Restore as in refinish or rebuild?
    Refinish is easy, sand it down and rub in teak oil, and keep adding oil
    For as long as you own it

    Yes I meant refinish. I've looked at that kit from west-marine that comes with the cleaner, brightener, and teak oil. But was just wondering if just sanding and oiling will give the same results as the kit. thanks guys.

    buddy of mine used the kit from West. His looked better after using the brightener than just sanding and oiling.
