Nitro Finish.

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm making a guitar for a school project, I sprayed it with nitrocellulose and I need to hand it up in less that two weeks (It will be one and a half weeks by the time I've done the final sanding and coat) I was wondering what the minimum curing period is, I live in Adelaide - Australia, its quite warm and dry, I can probably refit the hardware and then in a couple of weeks remove it and buff the guitar. but if I can get past it with less fussing about it would be great, any tips.....?

If you absolutely must turn it in, and it's not ready, be sure you don't lay the finish on anything textured before whoever needs to look at it sees it. If the lacquer isn't hard and your put in on something textured (just about everything except leaving it hanging) it'll mark very easily. You can always finish sand and buff twice if you layed down a thick enough finish. My gut says it won't be fully cured in a week and a half.
