I've never really thought of doing a finishing / re-finishing project (well, I resprayed my Watkins Rapier from white to black back when I was a teenager...) until very recently. But like so many I started looking for a non-existent guitar -- a 12-string Tele with a self-coloured headstock in this case -- and that got me thinking about buying parts and refinishing them. And then I thought, since I've never really liked the colour of my old Squier P-Bass, why not start with a practice run on that? Here it is, a rather ugly two-colour burst... I bought it in 2006, it's had very little done to it except changing the white scratch plate to that black one. Now dismantled & stripped of hardware, ready for the re-finishing process to start. I've bought nitro rattle cans from North Western Guitars, and I've watched their videos which have given me a degree of confidence that I can do this & end up with a guitar that looks good -- but before that there is more destruction to do, namely sanding back the headstock face and getting the finish off the body.
