    I am going to repaint a cab and head that only have three colors: white (50%), red (30%) and black (20%). I'll be using Frisket film for a stencil. Which color should be applied first, which second and which third?

    TIA

    I would go white for sure then red then black. Go light on the red and black

    Doc, to be honest with you, I'd rather not say right now because it's an early Bally solid state that's very popular and it's nowhere near finished and I don't want anyone bugging me for pics and pricing, and then having to keep track of who contacted me first, who made the first offer, etc., etc. I speak from experience. It will be for sale at the White Rose/York Show in October. I will say that it had a cameo in a famous motion picture.

    I agree, white first. Red will cover easily ovet that. Black last, it will cover over anything and nothing covers over black well.

    I'm currently painting same colour pallet (+ silver Bally splatter) to recreate the art on my Rocket III, fortunately all straight lines so frog taped. I did white(base) + splatter all over, then black/red on the cab and red/black on the head as I'd run out of black!

    That looks great I need to redo a Rocket III cab also. Mike

    I'd think through the color order possibilities and choose the one that requires the simplest stencils.
