Swirl test full scale, now finished

Hello, I thought that maybe some people wanted to see my finished first full scale swirl project. The previous post was this one:

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f15/sw...le-115963.html

I let the swirl dry for about four weeks before I clearcoated it. I used two component car clearcoat.

So now I have leveled the clearcoat and buffed it to mirror finish. I pimped the pups with carbon fiber, also replaced the white dots on the fretboard with yellow dots and darkened the fretboard.

And last of all put DR Strings - Red Devils on, looks amazing.

This was my first try so therefore I didn't test it on any of my guitars, but that day will come. I don't know when, swirling and clearcoating is very, very time consuming.

So let me know what you think about it. /Sandman

Here it is:

This was your first attempt swirling an actual body? If so, well done man.

Yes this was the first time with an actual body, I have tested alot in small scale before with pretty good results. I got many warnings about how hard it was to do in full scale but this time it went well. I have no idea how next will be, but I hope for good results
