I'm sure that these are spread out somewhere in the forum, but a search didn't turn up anything obvious out of the first batch I read. My questions are pretty simple, so hopefully they can be answered quickly and simply. I do have some experience with spraying Jeeps and motorcycles, but it has been at least 20 years. Both questions are pretty easy. First, I have two Musikraft maple necks that came with their sealer. I've heard that they use a nitro sealer wash, so I'm wondering if that is enough to just start with a couple layers of lacquer, then some tint, and a couple more clear coats or if I can go straight to the tint and then a couple of coats of nitro. The next question is what is the best method for spraying a neck? Do I hang it vertically and spray vertically or horizontally, or do I hang it horizontally and which direction of spray (horizontal or vertical) will give me the smoothest finish with the least buffing? The smaller parts I've sprayed on vehicles were easier to determine which direction of spray and orientation of the part would allow the best lines and least overspray. Thanks.
