Awesome job, Speedo!
May your Jag-stang serve you well and keep on inspiring you, it will surely deliver plenty of fun 8)

Thank you for sharing and, btw: cool logo!
Thx, you so much. You provided me hours of cool reading that makes me happy, and much more information than I expected.
I just regret that there's not so much pictures of your finished build.
PS: you was so right, build is addictive 😁

Hi alls' guys , after 2 tears i decided to refinish it
Image
Remove finish and draw additional cavity
Image
Removed some "extra wood" and make place for table (5mm) original weight was 2.7 Kg
Image

Image
After heavy sanding i could glue and cut new table (weight at 2.2 Kg now)
Image

Image

Image
I did a orange/red to yellow burst for table and add 4 couch of laque Melamine
Image
Then i sanded at 1000 / 2000 / 3000 / 4000 / 5000 and finally a paint polish (all at hand)
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
For border i refinished from "cerise" to "red"
Image
I keeped the back , it craked nicely and naturely

New total weight is 3.870 Kg for a 46 mm body

I hope you enjoyed theses pictures ::)

Thank you. I'm doing alright. Been struggling with some health related issues. But things are moving in a positive direction. One step at a time.
