    It's your choice. The runs on the copper look a bit too obvious to me, so it it was mine, I'd want to at least try and remove them.

    The copper itself isn't that robust, as you've mentioned, so my preference would be to try and get rid of the run patterns (at least the large ones), then put several coats of lacquer over the top, as that's what's going to protect the finish.

    Hi Simon. The runs and the small deposits are the bit that I'm most happy about. The wee small bubble / water marks I'm not so happy about but that's what makes life fun. Not everyone's opinion is the same.

    Indeed not. I like the bubble/water marks!

    Whatever you do should be right for you.

    Thanks guys.
    I'm that random guy that would rather have a spotlessly polished car or a dirty car but not a clean one with water marks. Otherwise known as a royal pain in the a55

    A bit ill over the past few days so 2000 wet/dried the copper back and put another 2 layers on. Such a lovely smell and taste of rust when sanding back and smoothed well. Neck glue and tuners arrived too so bit the bullet and glued on the neck. Clamp comes off this morning so fingers crossed all is well...
    Light sand on the exposed sections of neck joint and a final coat or 2 of the Danish oil on the way.
