Re: So I started a new OMC guitar build..have a question.
I planned on having someone do the swirl, but since it doesn't seem like it needs anything special then I will try it. Worst that can happen is I mess up and have to get it re-swirled. Might as well give it a try. Someday i'll learn to swirl but right now I don't really have the time.
I was going to wet-sand in between clear coats on the orange one but I wasn't sure if it was a good idea or not. I was able to get it pretty smooth and didn't burn thru any where. On the swirl i'm going to lay LOTS of clear on it and really polish the hell out of it. The orange has 5 coats on it and I probably polished off (just guessing) maybe 3/4 to 1 coat (?-have no clue really).
After the initial mist coats on the swirl i'll probably lay down 8 coats of clear or more and then start the polishing. What's your thoughts on that? More/less?
