    I'll admit, for a while yesterday, I was parading around the apartment, decal'd neck in hand, and I was jumping around pretending I was holding the completed guitar, air-rocking out.

    The headstock looked so badass lol

    Glad you like it dude! I'm getting really excited for this to come together. Probably a week or two left, estimating the drying times for the clear coats.

    Speaking of clear coats...I'll be applying a new coat tonight.

    Also, I have acquired some polishing compound - Meguiar's ultimate compound. Rejoice!

    ^ lol, thanks.

    I just sprayed on another clear coat. warmed up the rattle can in some warm water before I started and it made the whole process MUCH easier. flowed out of the can much better and more even. I didn't get a single run for this pass.

    Also a thought occurred to me: every time I've applied primer, paint, or clear coat, I've been either tipsy or high. :\

    Lord, I hope it turns out ok.


    Also, something else I just noticed: despite wearing a repirator and having good ventilation in my spray area, every time I spray, I tend to get a little woozy/extra high. That's probably not a good thing.

    Kids, don't spray petrochemicals in enclosed spaces. It's not good for you. Get someone else to do it instead and then you can laugh maniacally as they suffer.

    I made like 15 mistakes typing this message out. Thankfully, I'm a spelling nazi so I had to go back and fix each and every one of them, so you can't actually tell how f'd up I am right now.

    Christ.

    No pics today. spent the evening wetsanding the body and headstock. Afer finishing that, I sprayed another layer of clear on the headstock. Haven't got enough left for the body, so I'll pick up another can tomorrow. I'm guessing this will be the last.

    The body is sitting pretty at 600 grit right now but it's already starting to develop some mirror finish in the right light. Once I get it up to 2000 and then use the polishing compound it's gonna look sexay.
