Filling the Gap

Update on the Fender Maple neck re-fret.
All the frets have now been removed.
Now I'm building up the area that was damaged during the removal of the original frets.
You may remember from a few posts ago that this was a dip neck (finished after the frets were applied). During the removal process some of the finish chips off.
So here I'm brushing Nitro Lacquer in the areas that chipped away. Essentially building up the area so it's flush with the rest of the neck. When It's all level, smooth and polished like the original finish I'll install the new frets.
