OK I'm going to paint it myself come payday. Can someone tell me the best place to get the paint and what sand paper I need between coats? I'm not restoring it original, I'm thinking ivory with black lugs or black with gold lugs.
Hi, you may find this funny, but if you are painting it black, I bought some black automotive spraypaint from Poundland for £1 a can and it gave a great finish! I wouldn't recommend sanding between coats unless you get any inclusions (bits of dust usually) and then use some very fine grit - I use 2000. If you are going to laquer it you could use 2000 on the last coat of paint, but go carefully and degrease before laquer.
