    Sweet - where'd you get that big one-piece shielding sheet? I want some of those.

    Nice looking wiring and can't wait to see it all complete.

    Cheers,

    If you're not interested in the Fender part, GFS has these cheap.

    20170906_151254.jpg Back in the day the aluminum shields had a sanded look to them.... I just went a little heavier sanding to blend in the hole I filled with solder to cover the 62 screw location...I'm going for a 64/65 NOS type build...clean

    The color is gorgeous! I want to try and get an orange that has the same "life" to it.
