I started out trying to polish the scratches out of the white plastic binding. It didn't come up too bad but again,this will go down as something to watch next time.
I sanded the back and sides starting at 400 grit and going up to 2000 wet and dry.
It has come up pretty smooth.I have a few dings and marks on the sides that I will need to sort out.
I bolted the neck back on and for some reason the gap between the neck and body seems to have got bigger.??and I am really not too sure what to do about it either.
