Is the lifting around the screw holes due to the water seeping in?

Tbh it's not perfect but it's a pretty good job given what you had, and it's inspiring me to try my own rattle can job.

Yes, it's even worse on the back. On one of the neck screws cracked the finish. :fp:
So, yes, it's far from perfect overall. On the other hand I possibly wouldn't dare to touch it after all that work if it had turned out perfect.

Don't worry, the colour is too gorgeous to stay focused on the liftings. If the cracks bother you that much, just go wild and relic it :ph34r:
