Thread: RC-1 Custom 25.5 Scale Bolt on Neck

  1. #31
    Total of 8 coats of clear applied...despite 2.5 days of dry time the lacquer is still soft and can be marked with a finger nail....I'll let it dry for a week and (hopefully) I can then sand back the orange peel.

    Looking good. I'm not surprised that 2.5 days isn't long enough. I'd be waiting a couple of weeks at least before the wet sand and polish.

    Nice colour and looking good!

    IME (so far) single pack lacquer needs at least 7 days before wet sanding, regardless of what the mfr may state in their MSDS.

    I typically wait 2 weeks before I do it. For me, *that's* the hardest part of the build... WAITING!!!

    Thanks for the feedback...I've developed patience over the last 2 month due to this cold spell in Melbourne..

    It's now been 6 days and it still hasn't passed the finger nail test....I'll wait at least another week before proceeding further. Hopefully it will be OK....

    Wet Sanded with 1200 and 2000 grit. Then some buffing with a foam pad...

    I think I'll leave it at that, lest I sand through the clear.
