hey hey UG

I'm building a Fender Precision, and i'm going to eventually order a neck from Warmoth, but in the mean time i have this old Encore neck that i want to get some use out of
i've already started scalloping it and i've sanded the Encore logo off the headstock, along with the finish on that front-facing part and i've received a decal from decaljoe.com that i need to apply in between finishes

So my question to you today, UG, is: What items do i need to put a finish onto my headstock and how do i do it?

Rockin' shit
