  3. No, once the decal is applied, you just need to spray a very thin coat to tack it down, then apply normal clearcoats.
  4. I`m new here to the boards and noticed this was an old thread. I introduced this method to Washburn years ago when they introduced the MG series droptops. Rout a series of parallel kerfs to the underside of the top at the angle where the arm scarf will be bent. Steam the top for 1.5 minutes and use a radiused caul for clamping or before you throw it in the vacuum bag. Mike
