Painting the guitar

So I've painted the guitar and sprayed on a coat of clear, it's looking okay:

It's a start. (The photo makes it look much better than it is). What I've still got to do:

- Sand it back

- Put on another coat of clear

- Sand it back using very fine sandpaper (600,800, 1000, 1500, 2000 grit)

- Polish it

- Replace pickup, volume selector switch

- Put it all back together and hope it works!

I've done practically everything wrong that you can, so it's been an interesting challenge. The painting of the guitar is the easiest part - it's getting it flat that's the hard bit!
