Thanks @koendb I’m looking forward to building it back up again. I’m toying with the idea of painting the pickup covers white pearl to match the racing stripes. 🤔

@boo I think that could work. Black pickups might not give enough contrast ( perhaps depending on the bridge color? )
So why not make it more stealthy instead? I like the idea

@koendb I think I’ll just put the original chrome bridge back on and paint the pickup covers white pearl then. Thanks for the input. 👍

@boo

I forgot to say that I did look for a pot in my spores box but don’t have one sorry

I've got some used B500k pots that I got as a job lot, I'll send you one of these, or a pair of A&B, or any combination of the two, if its of any use to you.

Wow thanks @robin that would be great, thanks very much. Just a B500k I think. I was up in Lochgilphead a couple of weeks back, all around that region, I love it. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I'll put that in the post on Monday. I was probably there at Castle Sween when you were in the Lochgilphead area, we've been travelling back and forth quite a lot lately, but at home now for a few weeks.

@boo

I'm glad it got to you. I've got no idea where I plucked the wrong address from. I wonder who's address that is then.

Hi @boo

What size nozzle do you have on your spray gun for clear lacquer?

Cheers

Darren

@darrenking Hi Darren, I use a 1.3mm tip with matching needle and air cap. 1.2mm and 1.4mm are acceptable too but make sure you have the right air cap and needle. 👍

@robin It was actually quite similar and one that people have said before. It happens a lot actually and we don’t know why. Not to worry, it got here. Cheers. 👍
