Hi I'm looking for advice. What steps would it take to refinish an existing white nitro guitar with a natural headstock to a metallic colour with matching headstock? What if there are a few dings? Would it be possible to achieve a good refinish without stripping? I'm a total noob but have been reading up on this forum. Any advice is appreciated.

You can get a good finish without stripping; however, a metallic color will most definitely show any imperfections that are already in the body. Flaws in the wood need to be dealt with first.
