  • painting a pickguard

    Anyone here ever done it? Tips, advice,...?

    The plan: light sanding, a couple layers of pvc primer, light sanding, a couple color layers (regular spraycan), a couple clear coats (also regular spray paint)...

    Should work if you're not after a perfect super smooth shiny result...Right?

    I'm diy'ing, the body I bought came with a white guard, which I want to be black.

    I found a brand of spray cans especially for plastics, but they're not available anywhere near. Ordering from the us/uk would end up costing me as much as ordering a new custom made pickguard.

    how about some self adhesive vinyl. it would be much easier and look better. get it from a hardware, arts store, or sign writers workshop

      Excellent idea actually, why didn't I think of that myself?? I'm sure I'll be abe to find a local store that has what I need.
