Default Re: Ford Ranger hood painting

you should be able to get the prep solvent at any auto motive paint store maybe even at autozone not for sure... 800g is 800 grit sand paper... you can get it at qutozone i think walmart carries it as well... if you are stripping it back to bare metal you would put the black inbetween the primer and the clear... if doing it over paint you should be able to spray the black after sanding... personally i think paint looks better ontop of primer.

Painting a hood is quite simple. I removed mine to prevent overspray. After that, wet sand with fine sand paper. You can clean it off with alcohol to remove any dirt, oil from your hands, and paint powder. Look into the gleam of the hood. If you see anything shiny, sand it again. Once it's all sanded and clean, tape off your pattern. When you're done with tape, start painting. Keep the nozzle about 10 - 12 inches away from the hood. The finer the spray, the better it will look. Add about 4 or 5 coats of color and then 3 or 4 coats of clear coat. It's actually simple. Give it a try!
