Nitro And Plastic

Recommended Posts

Hey I just read that if you leave plastic in contact with nitro lacquer for more than a few hours they will both start to go soft and stick to each other, and so why are we using plastic for our truss rod covers, cavity covers, pup covers, pup rings etc etc arnt they damaging the finish on our made and bought nitro guitars?

.. And if you spray a very light fine coat first, it will harden in a few seconds. It won't be a problem after that. If you spary a heavy first coat, it takes a while for the inside of the coat to harden and it will soften some plastics.

I sprayed a guitar with a clear coat on the painted portion that when I sprayed the top with nitro, it melted the plastic type clear. The fix it easy, spray a light coat first.
