bright reds/pinks have a tendency to overload the sensors in digital cameras.

But looks nice so far... Good job..

the former owner put that nasty olive stain on there, not me.

It's starting to feel about as smooth as a bowling ball.

Very nice, should look real hot once finished. What paint are you using?

I used a SEM white aerosol base I got at an auto paint store. on sale $7

I used a Zynolyte neon orange aerosol from a chinese dollar store. $1.19

then I put rustoleum aerosol flourescent pink over that. $1.19

the clear coat is SEM chrystal clear aerosol from the auto paint store. $7


The SEM stuff is awesome if it's fresh. I actually have SEM flourescents I got on sale, but they went on like water and looked like ****. I ended up using the SEM base and SEM clear

The zynolyte orange was $1.19. It went on the nicest. It glows the most by far. It went on with zero flaws. I hardly had to sand it.


the rustoleum goes on like ****. It doesn't like to cure. It doesn't sand well.

I wish I only would've used the orange, but then, the finish would be orange instead of this rad coral look I have going

Who's the scary dude with the poodle hair?

Maybe that's what's interfering with the finishes ;-)

LOL. Paul Gilbert. He looks very young there. Must have been about 1989.

Isn't rustoleum made for metal, not wood?

Guitarslinger, it's looking much better already.
Any colour would be better than that ghastly olive green *shudders*

Looks MUCH better than the green, and that diamond plate pickguard needed to go badly as well
Nice job!
