    Great logo however I would recommend looking for a more rounded truss rod cover.

    TO is best used on things that can take the amber tint therefore blue will always end up green.

    Clear acrylic is probably best bet on blue.

    Too much awesome grain to hide under a dark colour.

    An ultra violet or magenta shade in high gloss would look great.

    Will keep an eye on how this one progresses.

    Hi Ozzie,
    Cheapie 1" to 2" brushes from BGSFOS which can be cleaned up in turps.
    I tended to use mostly cheapest 1" and throw them after 2 coats.
