Clear coated the Bandsman neck again today, I’m starting to get a decent finish now. I’ve got a few paint defects in it but I’ll sand it and apply more clear in another few days.

OK, it’s time for some work on the body today, time for some primer. I’ve masked up the cavities so I don’t get unwanted/unneeded paint in there. 

Also, the body has been left in Aquacoat grain filler, sanded to P320 grade. Just as an experiment I sprayed some 1K coloured paint on it from a rattle can, just to see if there were any paint reactions. The answer is, No, there were no paint reactions. This will not be seen when the guitar has been painted, it was literally just to see what would happen, it will now get covered with primer and never seen again. 

I’m using primer instead of sealer because none of the wood will show, it’s all being painted over.

Good to know @boo. I'm still debating whether to do a paint job when the time comes. 🎨🖌️

Got the body in primer. I’ll let it settle and cure for a few days and then I’ll start sanding it flat.

I keep seeing a Mirka sander in these updates.

Enough reminders of the tools that I don't have ....

😆

 

Looks like good quality work again Mr Boo.  Is the "guide coat" to make it easier to see where you've sanded (or not)?
