I have had my S.U.B. for a few years now. I love the bass but I fell out of love with the white textured finish. It started turning yellow, there is some arm funk still trapped in it from its previous owner that I couldn't clean off, and there were a couple of chips in the finish. So I have decided to give it an emerald green sparkle finish. This is the bass Disassembled, and block sanded flat. I am using the factory sealer because there is no reason at all to strip down to bare wood on a refinish. The factory sealer coat is already dead level, and is a perfect starting point for the refinish. Black base coat, In a minor brain fart, I forgot to wipe the body down before I shot the black base coat, so there is some dust in the finish. It shouldn't hurt anything. When the base coat is dry, I will scuff sand it with a sanding block and 400 grit, and start applying the flake.
