ByronBlack Posted December 16, 2008 Report Share Posted December 16, 2008 Hi chaps, I recently finished spraying a nitro finish on my maple guitar, it came out a treat, except that during the wet-sanding (upto 1500 grit) I have sanded through a few area's. Basically, I realise that I've not sprayed enough nitro on and it was thinner than I realised. I also went from the 1500 grit to a burnishing cream, which has brought up a bit of shine, but otherwise it seems a little mucky, and you can still see some scratches from the 1500 grit. What's my next best approach? I need to fill/repair the sand-throughs (it's a solid black coat + clear), but can that be done now that I've added the burnishing cream? Is there a way to remove it from the damaged area's ahead of repairing so that I can add the black and then the clear? And secondly, whats the best way forward now to get rid of all the fine scratches and bring up to a shine? Should I go back with a coarser polishing compound and then up to a finer compound? (If so, which ones in the UK come recommended?) I don't have a powered means of polishing, other than a random-orbital sander with a foam pad (which now has the burnishing cream on it so I don't think I can use it for something else unless there is a way of cleaning it off?). Any help to rescue this finish would be gratefully received. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
