Restored BFP

Got this last summer and it was a bit of a minger .Pulled it out last week and gave it a good brush n scrub up.
I had 3 goes at the neck to get it right.











Gonna string it next week and give it a good thrashing.

Re: Restored BFP

Just wondering man, doesn't the clear coat on the neck wear off then and now it's going to get dirty all the time?

Re: Restored BFP

You did a great job by the looks of it.
Looks much better now that its all cleaned up and looking like new again.

It was always one of my more preffered JEM's.
