Anyone else seen this? A nice detailed looked at how a PRS is built from start to finish. Pretty interesting to see the various build steps (and what they use).

Ha! Most of the time I feel like GOB working on these things.

Ladyfinisher - you're right, I was able to peel it right off with a warm hairdryer and plastic putty knife, got it recoated and I'm off ...

Ugh...yeah, figured that was probably what I should do. What's the best way to strip it? Wipe with a rag doused in thinner? Or spritz it with thinner, let sit then scrap with a plastic putty knife? Si ...

If such a thing exists. I'm having a heck of a time keeping stuff out during the clear coat; not so much of a problem with ReRanch cans for the color. I wonder if it's because I use an HVLP sprayer fo ...

Thanks! That's exactly what I did all last night; such a bugger, but it's done and looks good. Really weird how those ripples formed, I wonder if I hadn't let the touch-up spots cure long enough befor ...

Thanks Lon! Yikes, don't want any craters on these things. What'll probably end up happening is I'll spray them at night (in the 60s), let them hang and dry till morning, then move inside.

Yeah, I ...

Working on a 2nd and 3rd build, was wondering if hanging them in my (non-temp controlled) shed as they dry/cure during the different stages would be a problem. I live in a warm/dry climate at around 5 ...

Ok, great, thanks! You're right, it isn't that bad, just didn't want to make it worse.
