Hey guys and gals. I've been seeing a lot of posts and questions relating to refinishes with automotive paint on basses. Since I work for an automotive paint company I thought I would show you guys what I did. The first thing I did was scuff the finish with a grey scotch brite and a lot of scuff paste. Because there were nobdings or chips I could paint right over the finish it had. I just made sure there was no shine left on the bass.
