Hey guys.
I have an all black guitar and want to add a bit of colour to it (ibanez rg) and was thinking about spraying a small bit of gold on it artistically.
I don't really wanna do it directly on the guitar because im wanting to preserve the original state, so;
I was wondering if it were a good idea to paint on clear film (like contact), clearcoat that, then stick it in the top of the guitar?

If you want to keep it original don't paint it, if you want to paint it just paint it.

You're basically talking about clear packing tape with lacquer over it...not a good idea. Besides that, the lacquer will seal over whatever is under it; you can't just peel it off.

Ahhhhhh
Even if I painted the plastic before I attempted to sick it on?

That is not going to work. The paint will just flake off as soon as you try to manipulate it.

No it will not work

If you want it painted you will have to bite the bullet just paint it. There is no way to do what your asking.

There are websites that will make custom body stickers for guitar. So you could go that route if you really want to change the look of the guitar but still have the option to reverse what you have done

I saw on tv a clear spray that you can put on the hood of your car to prevent chips. you are able to then peel it off. don't know if it works.

just googled it and look at 3M. http://blogs.motortrend.com/diy-clear-bra-from-3m-prevents-stone-chips-for-under-50-29631.html#axzz2bC2VHtn4

Car paint is a completely different material. Depending on what this spray is made of, if the guitar has a poly finish, chances are this may just bond to the finish, defeating the purpose entirely. The solvent in the spray could actually damage the original paint too.

there are plenty of car paint that are polyurethanes.

Just trying to give him an option. it is up to him to research compatibility.
