guitar101 Posted April 15, 2007 Report Share Posted April 15, 2007 I am using Minwax gloss poly on my guitar body but I am getting mixed results. It either goes down with a slight orange peel or if I spray it thicker I get small bubbles. I also have some gloss Minwax poly in a can and I tried wiping it on mixed with 30% Varsol but it isn't as shiney as the spray.. I am using Varsol as a cleaner for the body before spraying and a tack cloth. Also if I sand the poly out using 800 then 1500 and ending with 2000 grit wet/dry paper will it polish to a mirror finish. I think I should be able to lay down a final coat that doesn't need polishing. If Southpa is out there maybe he could wade in with some advice. I lay the guitar flat and then shoot one side at a time that seemed to help as he suggested in another post. For polishing I have some Turtle wax buffing compound and turtle Wax polish cleaner (finer grit). I was planning to pick up some Scratch X swirl and scratch remover for the final shine. Tony...
