This holiday weekend is the spraying weekend. I built the spray booth and assembled it on my backyard patio. It is portable and comes apart in sections. It is 5.5' square and 7' tall. It keeps the dust away!
I just finished the second day of spraying lacquer. I'm using Deft Gloss Lacquer in rattle cans, and it is going on smoothly. I put three coats of sanding sealer, and will have twelve coats of lacquer when I'm done.
It is great to get to this point in the build. I plan on micromeshing to 12,000 grit and doing a final polish by hand.
I have also wanted to refinish guitar build number 1 since I was not pleased with the way the Tru-Oil finish (not the Tru-Oil's fault) turned out. I figured while the spray booth is up, now is the time, so I disassembled yesterday and sanded back to wood. I still had some pores showing, so I did one application of epoxy and sanded it back today and it looks great. I am leaving the bridge on and will mask it off before I spray it. It will go into the booth when the current build comes out. I will again use the Deft Lacquer.
THIS IS FUN!
