It’s my bro Hector’s birthday. or was, a while ago. He wants a stick. I have a SE shell sitting around, not being used…
Unfortunately the red paintjob I gave it had began to peel, and generally looked back. So I went to work.
I ran out of daylight before I could do multiple coats of paint. That’s a good thing, though, because I noticed I should sand inbetween coats. Some sparts are noticibly darker (must’ve missed spots while sanding) and need to be sanded back down.
I sanded it first with 180 grit coarse because nothing else was pulling up the Krylon. Once it did that, I hit it with 250 grit, then 400, then 600 grit. Unfortunately I’m a little rushed, so I didn’t quite get it smooth in retrospect. I’ll sand inbetween coats.
