    Primer filler applied

    Sprayed 4 wet coats of primer filler according the the "Phrozin" method. Went mostly well and I am impressed with the Spray Max spray cans as they give a very good spray pattern almost like a spray gun. One drip at the end of the headstock to fix as I could not pick up the body using the neck after the first coat was applied. May have to attach something to a tuner hole that I can lift the neck up with when I do the colour and clear coats.

    That looks good. Are you planning to spray the colour before scraping the binding, and then clear over the lot? I'd be interested in which paints you're using (aside form the primer) and where you sourced them from.

    Tape and Paint

    Its not obvious in the photos but the binding on the body is taped up with thin tape the good 3M stuff. The neck is taped up with paper masking tape. I am going to do the colour with the tape in place and then take the tape off the binding (body and neck) for the clear coats. It is inevitable some bleed of paint will occur so the binding will be scraped before the clear coats go on. The colour and the clear are from the local car paint supplier and are recommended by them. I havent used them before but they supposedly have the better spray nozzles like the Spray Max can.

    Oh I found the handle from a small foam brush I had lying about to be the perfect size to fit tightly in the tuner hole to help me hold the neck up after the first coat of paint has been applied.
