Bit of a long term resto project finally finished.
Had it for around 4 years, came with one bad pickup & very knocked around body.
Fortunately the body damage wasn't major, just lots of it, small chips & dents etc.
Pretty much all of the drop fills were done in stages over the years & left.
I used polyester resin for the fills, so they were really nice & hard to work on now.
Definitely the best end result I have achieved to date.
Also have put together a fairly good system for polishing the plastics like pickups etc.
enjoy.

Thanks Guys, I just put up a new thread with an explanation of how I do the plastics, I hope you find it worthwhile.
Cheers.
