DeadRinger 2022
« on: January 21, 2023, 05:49:23 PM »
Another one from the Drew haul, this time a powder blue with a simple but effective water slide.  Got it shot with a nice coat of clear, just let it dry and we're ready to go.  Was sitting directly under a drill bit in a drill press and I don't know why I'd think that a drill bit would magically loosen itself and fall on the paint.  So I decided it had to move.  Dropped it and plop, it landed on it's face...

So it's sanded down, re-decal'd and drying.  I'll see if I can clear it again without buggering it up.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Oh no!
I've been there plenty of times too. Hopefully you'll be able to recover and have something worth your troubles....  ;D

So the story has a happy ending.  I redid (is that a real word?) the graphics after sanding back the damage and salvaged the original finish.



This is a crafty pedal and I can see a few peeps swooping in to scoop this one up...

Looks good! I never would have guessed it took a dive. That's a bummer, though. The only thing I can think of that feels worse is burning through a solder pad.

Another great build and nice save. I love me some sd-1 and fuller knew what he was doing when he made this one, a real classic that you did with class here.
