Ok so i have decided im going to make my squire strat amazing with a nu finish and hardware. i have the original paint off and the body sanded down to 220. i'm going to have a friend of mine do a small design on the bottom part of the guitar and im going to leave an oval around that area of just wood showing through with a solid or metalic finish everywhere else... now i understand the whole idea behind acetone-prime-sand-guide coat-sand-fill-prime-sand-paint-sand(if not metallic)-clear-buff-smiles BUT if i just do all that around this oval there is going to major buildup am i just gonna have to clear over that and sand and clear until the clear comes up to level with the paint every where else or what? ive looked and all ive found is instructions on solid colors/burst etc... is what i want to do possible?

its not a matter of what im putting in the non metallic part its a matter of how i bring the clear from wood up to the clear on the paint and level everything out so it looks good.

i dont think it will be perfect, but if you wait until the metallica stuff is dryed out and then put on the clear stuff, it should do fine and not mix

PS try to get the most colorless transparent kind you can, wood colored lacquer(or whatever its called) gets very dark when it is thick
