    Lines didn't come out anywhere near as clean as I liked, so I had to do some touch up work. Ended up smearing some black acrylic paint in spots by accident, which gives the guitar a more weathered/relic'd vibe. Not what I intended at all, but it's a "happy little accident".

    It should pop a lot more once I clear coat it too.

    I'd add a bit of yellow, but it's only me.

    Temp dropped a lot while I was spraying the 2k so it didn't cure as quickly. Honestly I hate how shoddy it looks, but I guess I'll just lean into it for this build fully since it's in the spirit of what Eddie originally did with his Frankenstein. I'd like to try my hand at this or something in the same vein at a later date when it's warmer out, and I'm not constantly fighting the weather.
    Anyways, here's some pics of the old hardware back on it. I was originally going to replace them with all black, but I think the beat to shit/weathered hardware actually ties in with the vibe of the guitar.

    Decided to add some white pinstripes like I originally planned. I'm going to try some vinyl pinstripe tape and see what looks good as far as patterns. Still too damn cold to paint.

    Those white pin stripes give it a 3D feel, I like it :D

    vinyl tape is on. Might tweak some parts a bit more more but overall I'm happy with it.
