    I am using spray cans of enamil paint I got on sale at walmart. You know the kind you use to put on your car models. Anyway I have this old Ibanez roadstar II I picked up for 70 bucks, the body looks remarkably like an old kramer(just a little shorter), so I am using it for my project. I sanded the old red paint down to a dullness, and filled in the old gouges left be the maniac who really used the Floyd on it. sanded it again with 320 grit. now I just primed it with white and got a couple of runs, what should I do?

    Well nobody answered me, and I put on the
    gold paint and the clear coat. It got bubbly in the middle of the guitar body. I guess I will have to stripe it out and call her Goldenstrat!

    I'm sorry I missed your post, anytime you have runs dripes errors fisheyes etc that you don't want just *wet* sand it with 220 then 320 on the effected area, let it dry then repray. wet sanding is a must here, if you dry sand you'll build too much heat and start gummimg up the paint.

    yes you can same way only use 320 and 600 and wet sand, once it's low enough respray it they are small spots you don't even have to respray you can sand and buff them out that's only if they are real small though.
