Rattlecan Refinish In Progress (SBMM SUB content)

  1. So, I want one of these...


    And I have one of these....


    So I decided to make my own. With the help of my boyfriend who is experienced with this sort of thing. This is a first coat. Much more paint/sanding/polishing to go!






    Also plan to upgrade all the guts and the tuners.

    Looks really good so far. Metal flake can be tricky, but that looks nice and even. What kind of products are you using?

  6. Yeah, that's what I thought too. We'll see!

    Much better. The depth comes with a clear coat.

    Looking really good. Lots of clear coats on top and it will look pro.

    (Also appreciate the matching autumn leaves background...)
