Thread: PRS-1H Build (My First)

    PRS-1H Build (My First)

    I have finally started started my kit. My first time building one of these things and I probably need all the help I can get. I am going with a Outback Sunset Stain with Chrome hardware, I think that will turn out nice

    Good stuff, post lots of pics. We like pics.

    You can avoid the forum uploader by hosting on something like Imgur and hot linking it here. I can post instructions if you are having trouble working it out.

    Hi TYS, ask any questions you have here and we can help you out. Would be nice to see a pic of the kit and I'm keen to see the flame maple veneer to see if it's worth staining black first to pop the flames.
    Here's an example of a LP-1M kit I did before staining

    you probably need to resize the picture to below 1MB and dimensions no larger than 1500 x 1500 resolution

    My PRS-1H has been a challenge as my 14th axe build so trying it as a first build will certainly test your skills. I'm sure you'll get through it...!

    Most of my photos are from my Samsung S5. I email them to myself on a PC as attachments reduced to 10% in size giving JPG picture file sizes of less than 500kb. Then when using the "Go advanced" menu here on the forum I upload using the paperclip icon... it's quick, easy, reliable, works well and has reasonable resolution, Never had a failure or complaint. Only limitation is 5 photos per post, so if you need more photos posted you simply have to post more replies.

    Wokks did you do that by soaking the black up with a dry rag or sanding and what stain did you use?

    Hey Andy I covered the whole veneer in black stain and carefully sanded it back to achieve that result with a sanding block and probably 240 to 320 grit paper. That was about 3 years ago that build. I used FW proof tint black which is darker than Japan black - lucky DB doesn't read many posts these days haha

    To get pics in your post the best way is to host on imgur.com

    You sign up with an email address - very easy. Imgur is a community so you can actually make your stuff public and interact with people on there - but I use it purely for hosting and keep my profile private.

    Anyway, this is what your library looks like - you can also break it up into albums, but this works for me.



    You can drag and drop directly onto this page from your desktop or a folder on your computer. You can do it with multiple images at the same time. or you can click 'add images' and hunt for them in the traditional way to upload.



    When you click on an image in your library, this box pops up. I usually choose 'large thumbnail' (in the bottom right hand corner) for forums like this. Then click on the 'direct link' code in the boxes on the right hand side. This automatically copies the code to your clipboard.



    Then come back to your Pitbul forum post and paste (Ctrl V) into your comment.

    Then either side of that code you need to type (img) in front of it and (/img) behind it, but use the square brackets --> [.

    (If you reply with quote to this comment, you will see what I mean re the brackets)

    Then it will hotlink back to imgur and appear in your post. This also helps you get around the 5 photo limit on here. You can also post any size pic if you hot link, so you are not limited to the 1500px width or 1mb file size of the forum uploader.
