Applying the colour and clear coat lacquer finish, to my candy apple red, H/H Jaguar. Translucent Red over Shoreline Gold... plus cautionary notes on spraying lacquer in warm weather
I want a polished finish for this ash Jaguar body - but I also want a super-thin nitro coat. Here's how I achieve a high gloss in just six, *(or seven) steps.
Filling a few minor "pinholes", tinting and toning the colour coat, and applying a final clear gloss lacquer topcoat on a white blonde "Mary Kaye" type nitro finish.
I've had a while to rethink my original plans for this Jaguar, and instead of a "natural", shellacked finish - I'm going to spray a "white blonde" nitro finish instead.
Last push to clearcoat my JagStang body, before I take a few weeks enforced lay off...
Spraying a nitro "Candy Apple Red" colour coat onto a refurbished Fender Squier J. Mascis Jazzmaster body.
The urban dictionary has an entirely different meaning - Hmmm. But polishing this Jaguar is actually quite a "Zen" way to spend a dull autumn day.
Adding the protective clear coat to the painted body. This should eventually polish up into a lustrous, liquid shine.
