Now that spring has sprung, I'm dedicating more time in the shop to get this piano done. Once I removed the plate, I spent some time working on some of the major chips and scrapes in the cabinet. I also cleaned and sanded the plate. Gave it a nice new gold coat and a satin finish. I usually use a gloss finish on the plates because it makes it seem more clean. But this G2 had an orginal matte finish on the plate, so I wanted to stay with that.
