Gmc swirl jem body

I finished this today.... just gotta clean the rubbing compound out of the routed parts. Hope you all like it. No wise cracks about my worn out jeans, believe me I have heard them all!!

Sick looking guitar! How much did the whole project cost? and how much time did it take to clear-coat? I'm thinking about buying something like that.

Looks nice other than the claw area. Seems like you have some paint coverage issues there?

Its rubbing compound that you can see, as I said in the first post I had not cleaned it out yet.

Well then in that case clean it out and take some new pictures! It looks great otherwise.
