Clear on a headstock HELP


Junior Member
I've been trying to clear coat and polish my headstock for a month now and it's kicking my ass. I seem to be sanding thru. So I've sanded it all off (Deft Semi-gloss) . Is there a way to just mist it and maybe steel wool it so I dont have to polish it. I'm not looking for a mirror finish. I just don't have time to wetsand and try this again and again until I ass it up again and pay someone to do it for me. Frustrated to say the least.

Spray about 12-15 very thin coats, one in the morning and one at night for a week, then you wont have to sand much. Wet sand with at least 600 wet dry automotive paper, then polish. I use shellawax ultra shine to buff and a good auto wax to finish.
