    I'll definitely be interested in how the complete process from beginning to end goes...

    I'm rooting for the $6.00 per can finish.

    I spray painted one guitar pale yellow about twenty-five years ago. It came out pretty good, and I was just looking it over last weekend and thinking how well the paint has held up. Pretty sure I used bargain-basement spray paint, because that's my style.

    I know I put a pretty heavy coat of gray car body primer on it first, then finished it with a clear coat that I later scotchbrited off. These were pre-internet days, boys. I had no clue what I was doing.

    May be time to try another spray paint project.

    From my view on my iPhone, they both look the same.

    The Strat is the Graccys fiesta red, i’ll take more pictures when they both have a clear on them. You can see a slight difference in different lighting
