    Ah yes, making progress. Not really fond of this paint or this color, but, my wifey picked it out IMG_0509.JPG IMG_0513.JPG IMG_0511.JPG IMG_0514.JPG

    If you look close you might notice the pearlescent clear that's over the paint. Just a couple of layers for an effect. Not the top coat yet.

    Looks great! I learned the hard way patience and a very light touch is the way to paint. Nice job!

    Ok, 3 more light color coats and 3 pearlescent clear coats and stage two is complete! Finally.

    Alright, I'd like to get some opinions on this as I'm not to partial to any one of these pickgaurds. I like them all and thanks to a good friend I have these three choices. So here she is , (chewy II),

    I'd go with the tort and a 3-saddle if you have one.

    The speed knobs are a hard no for me Wayne...

    Thanks guys, SD The knobs aren't correct I know, but they were on it when I got it, and as such would be the only thing original from what it was when I got it.

    Keep in mind , all the pg's are new. Still have plastic on them. And as mentioned, it's not been clear coated or polished. I like all three pg's. In person I'm diggin the tort the most. Just curious what everyone else thought. And I am gonna replace the knobs . I don't have the brass saddles. But I agree they would look good
