Default Re: Looking for Broken Rod Blanks/Pieces

Appreciate the suggestions. I used an alcohol lamp to remove any bubbles and thin the finish, so I'm cool with that.

The first issue is that because the length of the decal I was not able to get it completely level from one end to another. While the finish is smooth and clear, you can see it is uneven:

The second issue is that some of the wraps have dark spots, even though I double coated the threads with CP:

My other issues with too much epoxy or threads not being exactly perfect will come with practice.
