The painting thing is a personal preference and depends on what finish you want, I don’t like glossy finishes I use float company bodies no primer, A mix of acrylic paint thinned down with water, one coat colour wash, then after assembly two coats of Ronseal varnish 50 50 mix with white spirits. Keeps a nice hard finish but still quite Matt, if I give them a third coat they start to get glossy. No right or wrongs , they Don’t break and the line doesn’t cut in. Oh and I only use carbon and glass stems.
