General instructions:

  • Do not remove the etched parts from the fret until you are ready to use them.
  • Before assembly, soak the etched parts in a suitable solvent, such as white spirit, to de-grease the surfaces for painting. It is recommended that the entire fret be primed
    with an acrylic automotive primer, such as Halfords Grey Primer before assembling any of the parts.
  • Cyanoacrylate adhesive (super glue) or contact adhesive such as a white PVA glue may be used. These can be applied with a pin or piece of stretched sprue.
  • When removing parts from the fret, place the fret on a hard surface, such as a smooth ceramic tile, in order to prevent parts bending whilst cutting through the holding
    tabs. We suggest t using a No.10 rounded type of modelling knife blade for this purpose.
  • ¬†When shaping or bending a part, a straight edged blade such as a chisel blade will give a good sharp corner.

Accordingly, we suggest you purchase our Photoetch Bender Tools for easy assembly.
