    I know StewMac and LMII have finish and the pigments to be mixed in and whathaveyou, but is there a place that sells pre-mixed already-in-color finishes??


    And while were on the subject of paint, what are the pros and cons to using automotive acrylic paints on instrument bodies?? I only ask because I'm looking for a particular shade of metallic finish commonly/traditionally seen only on cars.

    Try www.reranch.com for guitar finishes. As to the notion of an automotive color, I think some auto paint stores are willing to mix the color you want in lacquer.

    Those store would mix it in acrylic lacquer. I take it that stuff is OK to use, versus nitrocelluose lacquer?
