Gents, I have a sweet 1964 Fender Jaguar. It has originally been Candy Apple Red, infact the headstock still is, but somebody has painted over the body with somethng that looks like Dakota Red. I would love to refinish the guitar to its original glory. Could you please help me? Nobody has done a C.A.R.-refin to 60's specs here in finland so I'm trying to work out how to do it properly so I can guide the luthier who will shoot the body. So could somebody please describe the process of refinishing a guitar in Candy Apple Red right from the beginning, i.e. removing the old paint etc? I am especially interested in what to use as solvents in the various stages, e.g. what to mix the silver flakes in for the first coat, can I mix the C.A.R. concentrate into nitro and is there a top coat of clear nitro? Also where are the sanding and wet sanding stages? Can the flakes be sanded? Please take a moment and help me out if you can. Here's a couple of pictures of her now! She's a great player! Never knew Jags could be so great! Love it!
