It is an easy colouring job.


First - fill the void that exists in the headplate at the break, use wood putty, or epoxy, or car bog or whatever is readily available.

Second - smooth sand the surface flat

Third - shellac the filled area

Four - paint just the lower section, or mask the inlays and spray the whole headplate black

Five - scuff sand and apply 4 coats of clear lacquer

Six- allow dry for one to two weeks, wet sand 2000 grit on a backing block

Seven -buff smooth or micro mesh

You should have a pretty inviisble headplate repair, repeat similiar for the back area
