Normally, in a mini with a piece that covers a big chunk of the rest of the mini, like her guitar does here, I would leave the front bit off so it's easier to paint under it. However, in this case the point was to do the conversion (thank you, Gene), I kinda had to put the guitar in place at the time. It is a little tricky to reach under there. Probably trying to get the back of the guitar will be the most difficult.
I need to do some research to get ideas on how to paint up the guitar. I'm probably also going to start prepping her base tomorrow.
