    Re: Metal Flake T-Bird Project

    How did the flakes come out so uniform from a rattle can? I'm intrigued.

      pretty high quality stuff in these cans

      doesn't go quite a far as I would have hoped, I was squeaking out every last drop

      you still have to know how to spray but they're relatively easy to use

          Clearing like crazy since I have to have it set up for use Thursday. Not perfect but crazy cool, learned quite a bit.

          Cleared, flaked, cleared, flaked, cleared the truss cover that was really rough looking. Pics can't show it but it is deeeeeep

              Are you going to use the original hardware, or replace it with black chrome (or anodized)?

                The beer bottle to knobs really set it off!

                  it came to me with a mix of black and gold hardware and screws, everything is all black now.

                  The knobs were a little tricky but I think they work pretty well, it's all for fun.

                  I should have the neck on today if all goes well. The acrylic lacquer is very soft but it needs to be used for a show Friday night. After that it'll sit for a little while, I'll do a wet sand and some more clear and it should be pretty sharp.

                          cool project, Scott ... surprising how well you shot that flake!

                          it's encouraging for me ... I've just started a super strat project ... first it was gonna be Reranch, now I'm thinking of using Testors spray lacquers, 'cause I've used them on a couple of pedals, and they worked well

                          for some other neat looking flake finishes, here's Marty Bell's site:

                            I've got that same 3-point bridge/tailpiece on my LP bass. I hear there's an aftermarket version that's even better.

                              I'd show you guys the pics of it all done but I seem to have lost my phone -_-

                              My buddy was thrilled to death when he got it, everyone was pretty stoked about it seeing it.

                              Total feel good project.
