Thanks! Yeah, there is one part in particular that looks like a drip. It wasn't my drip, but my pride (as a painter) won't let me leave it, so I have an idea for removal/coverup that I will do later on. It's wild I can ignore chips and scratches that were not filled, and painted over, but drips? By Oden's neurosis...I could never. Lol!Chemistry aside… that is a killer paint job. I doubt anybody will notice any close up imperfections unless you point them out. Photos and normal standing distance look great!
Texas Road Toast! Yum.Had to go run some errands. Any one else pick up orphan parts in the parking lot?

Also, anyone else have a jar in their workshop/garage? Or do you have a drain? You know, you know...
Thank you so much. It's true. Most of the imperfections can't be seen, or won't be seen once everything is assembled. *but I'll know*Texas Road Toast! Yum.
Love the paint. You sound like me, I find every flaw in my own work, and try to fix them. Others say, where's the problem...
A long since passed, old dear friend of mine who taught me the art of acoustic guitar building used to tell me “ I still make mistakes, I just stopped pointing them out”Thank you so much. It's true. Most of the imperfections can't be seen, or won't be seen once everything is assembled. *but I'll know*
Though I gave it a 0000 rubdown, and cleaned the frame, I didn't take it down to metal or smooth out irregularities, so it still has a little grunge to it, but aside from the surface itself, the paint came out amazing! Got the blend I wanted, and hit it with clear. The beauty of Montana cans, is the paint dries so quick you can go to clear pretty quick. Had a Krylon high gloss readily available, so the clear will take slightly longer to dry. However, I've got my trusty dehumidifier hastening the process.

A Cali punk band called the Angry Samoans released an album in 88 titled "STP Not LSD". There was a track with the same title, but I doubt that's what you are talking about...
That's a cool find right there! I actually dig the way it's broken; you can still tell what it is, but it's got its own character now.
That’s why I always pull the appliances from the walls and remove the tanks from toilets when I paint….because “I’ll know”…definitely some sort of psychosis, maybe it’s treatable with STP!?!?Thank you so much. It's true. Most of the imperfections can't be seen, or won't be seen once everything is assembled. *but I'll know*
