deets #6 - part 2

i just wanted to show an update on this strat for all you john mayer fans. i have a new secret weapon and that weapon is called grain filler. it apparently fills up the pores in the wood like 20 times faster than the old way i was doing it. so here i am all the way into spraying primer on this piece.

lets have a look at the caboose. nice!

so i'm going with a custom color called coral red. it also looks kinda like a salmon so that's my new nickname for this. so after we apply the clear coat, we have to wait like three months to let this thing cure because we're working with nitrocellulose lacquer. the price you pay for going traditional.
