    I picked up an older Squier P to refinish. I started with a clean 97 Squier P Bass

    And ended up here:

    1. I preped the body of the 3M scuff pad
    2. Primed and sealed it with SEM high build primer in an rattle can
    3. Wet sanded with 400
    4. The House of Kolor Pink went on next
    5. Then some dry pearl in the clear
    6. And at last a final coat of clear and wet sand some more.

    I know this is kind of late but that is one of the coolest refinishes I've ever seen!
