    Boredom struck again. I pulled my other Ibanez apart and grabbed a can of Rustoleum Cardinal Red and had some fun :D

    Behold! I now dub it the hot rod! This is the first coat, I just lightly dusted it. I might shoot some nitro over it for kicks and giggles later on. I still need to order a can or two for the guitar I built.

    Only slightly... Lol. The first time I painted it in white, I think I spent a half hour on it. There was a ton of runs and it was starting to mess with my OCD :rofl:

    I have a 2 piece laminate sg special body from early 2000s. How Do I refinish this body? It's made of alder and maple.
    Thanks! I already started sanding the bottom half. Idk if the pic uploaded.

    Start with 320 and a good guide coat to knock the original finish down some, and then working up in grit from 500 to 800. After you’ve sprayed base and clear, use 1000, 2000, and 3000 followed by your choice of buffing compounds!
