patching a finish ?


Recommended Posts

I have an old strat neck that I was hoping to get away with a small patch of new finish but seem to be having problems with.

shows the problem, I sanded out a slight ding and applied some nitro sealer then a little clearcoat just to see what effect it would have against the original finish - obviously some colour is going to be needed to match the old clearcoat as it is now less than clear but what concerns me is that at the wrong angle you can see the new spray as a darker patch with a darker ring round it.

It would appear to me that I'm going to have to take all the finish off the back of the neck and do it all but any suggestions that would save me doing it all would be gratefully received.

cheers,

Paul
