I'm in the process of shielding the control cavity on a Warmoth body in preparation for Alembic PUs and electronics. It occurs to me my shielding paint is around six or seven years old. Does this stuff go bad? Using a multimeter set at continuity check, the painted cavity isn't completing the circuit so as to allow the meter to beep (like it does when a circuit is completed), but it does appear to be registering some resistance. Is this what it should be doing, or should the paint be conductive enough to complete the circuit and cause the meter to beep?

Bill, tgo

I would guess that your paint is fine and your meter isn't really a good indication of where the shielding is at; paint is a weird thing for a multimeter, so I wouldn't worry...Tony
