Well, after a lot of procrastinating, today I finally got around to starting to restore my 777dy I bought a couple months ago. I've posted pics of her up before, but Ill post them again to show what I started with. Ill keep updating pics of my progress as I go too.
Here's what I started with, previously owned and refinished by a member here, charv712.
Airbrush job of Elizabeth Banks
I was unsure of which method I should try to remove the top layer of clear and the airbrush job, but I decided sanding would be the easiest and least destructive of my options. I started on the back of the lower horn and found that sanding worked surprisingly well. I kept going and after an hour and a half of careful sanding by hand, this is where I am:
At the pace its going its going to take a long time to finish removing the paint, but Im fine with that as long as I can kept the DY intact as I have be able to do so far.
After I remove the airbrush all Im going to need to do is get some pink pups and green knobs, so if anyone has those check out my classifieds ad or shoot me a PM.
Also, hopefully someone can answer this question, how should I go about removing the paint on the pickguard? I feel like sanding it would scratch the pickguard too much. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Ill keep updating on my progress as I go. Back to work now!
