    got all of the epoxy work done, and struggling with just putting a clear on it or staining it first.

    I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s awesome! I love the look of that gold epoxy. Just wow!

    EDIT: Looked super cool with the original black burn too.

    I always liked the blue/purple/glow in the dark epoxy burn fills. They remind me of opal.

    Man that looks pretty slick.

    With that particular color you used to fill, I really like the 2 previous pics when the body was lighter with the white hardware and silver guard.
