The Ulster Defence Association (UDA) is the largest[5][6] Ulster loyalist paramilitary and terrorist[7] group in Northern Ireland. It was formed in September 1971 and undertook a campaign of almost twenty-four years during the Troubles. For most of this time it was a legal organisation. Its declared goal was to defend Ulster Protestant loyalist areas[8] and to combat Irish republicanism, particularly the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA). In the 1970s, uniformed UDA members openly patrolled these areas armed with batons and held large marches and rallies. Within the UDA was a group tasked with launching paramilitary attacks; it used the covername Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) so that the UDA would not be outlawed. The British government outlawed the "UFF" in November 1973, but the UDA itself was not proscribed as a terrorist group until August 1992.[9]

The UDA/UFF terrorists were responsible for more than 400 deaths. The vast majority of its victims were Irish Catholic civilians,[10][11][12] killed at random, in what the group called retaliation for IRA actions or attacks on Protestants.[13][14] High-profile attacks carried out by the group include the Milltown massacre, the Sean Graham bookmakers' shooting, the Castlerock killings and the Greysteel massacre. Most of its attacks were in Northern Ireland, but from 1972 onward it also carried out bombings in the Republic of Ireland. The UDA/UFF declared a ceasefire in 1994 and ended its campaign in 2007, but some of its members have continued to engage in violence.[15] The other main loyalist terrorist group during the conflict was the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF). All three groups are Proscribed Organisations in the United Kingdom under the Terrorism Act 2000.[16]

Perhaps the issue will be finding someone willing to do it based on politics, and not simply painting it.

This is not the forum to deal with hypotheticals. I was trying to point out a potential impedance. No more, no less.

It might be a lot easier to use a decal rather than paint. I think that "painting" is graphic art, decal application is lutherie.


Decal application has nothing to do with building a guitar; it's a simple process that can be done by nearly anyone who can read directions. Decals of any kind can be done on a computer-based decal printer for a water-slide style application. Easy-Squeezy, extra simple.

Politics are at the discretion of the owner of the guitar.

The choice of that kind of solution would, for me, depend very much on how good I wanted it to look when finished, and how much prior experience.

My experience with the acrylics I've tried here, not much I admit, is that they don't set hard enough to be used as a guitar finish. Maybe the automotive ones are better than the handyman ones.

Yup.
