so...i decided to paint my guitar, everything its coming along pretty good i think, but one thing bothers me. how to restore the hardware? everything its pretty rusty and old looking and i would buy some new hardware but i wanna spend as little money as possible painting it. so how would i go about painting the hardware, instead of sanding it is there a liquid a can use to strip it off its paint and paint it again?thanks!!
Metal hardware is generally electro plated not painted. Theres no easy way to get it off and paint will come off very easy.
