dogdaysunrise Posted April 12, 2009 Report Share Posted April 12, 2009 Hi, I just started to strip my S-series Body yesterday and I think I need some help now, because I have several questions. First I used the chemical method and strangely now word was mentioned on the main site to leave the paint on, in the pickup cavities, only in the sanding and heat tutorial is it mentioned to leave the paint on in the cavities, because it is a special conductive shielding paint :D So, well, now that I applied the stripper everywhere, where can I get this special paint to reapply it again??? I checked stewmac, but I didn't see it. Also, now that I have the paint off the body, it seems there is a clear layer or something still on the wood, which didn't get stripped, but in some areas is the wood shining through. I applied more stripper, but it won't take it off.....is this normal...do I have to sand that off.....what is this.......????? And last but not least, I lost confidence and I am frustrated (I know, barely started and I am already loosing confidence), but I am actually pretty crafty, but the way everything looks right now, I ****ed it all up by just the first step. I thought I'm gonna have the body stripped and just the wood and the next thing would be to apply the new paint, but now I stripped the paint in the pickup cavities, where I shouldn't have (maybe somebody should update that in the chemical tutorial so others won't do the same) and then there is still this clear layer on top of it, where in some areas the wood is exposed and it looks just ****ed up and makes me wonder why I didn't simply sand it down in the first place. Having said that, does anybody know a place in the Kansas City Area that does refinishing, maybe that's a better way to go, unless somebody can tell me, where I can get the special conductive shielding paint again and how I can get the rest off the body or what that even is....it feels like some hard plastic protective coat or is that the primer...I am so clueless. Any help very much appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
