Default Painting my powerdome

So far the paint on the hood has been sanded with 320, going to let it dry then put some resin on the scrapes from where the truck had flipped, then fill with bondo, and spray some primer.

so far i am thinking about painting the valley of the hood a gun metal grey. then clear over it with the black

to start



sanded







Factory paint


First light coat of gloss black scuffed with scotch brite pad


second coat wet


second coat dry


final coat of base


next coat will be the clear

2 coats of clear. keep in mind this is all rattle canned. in my garage. with no ventilation. and with alot of dust/bugs. no polishing done yet. going to hold off for a bit to work on the top.


I painted it as it would have came from the factory, there is a heat guard that clips on there.






Resin dried, wet sanded up with 220


Resin smoothed out, on gouges


First coat of "filler primer"

side with gouges. some spots i need to address.


Finally got motivated to finish this hood.









































as you can see in the last pictures the color doesnt quite match up 100% in direct sunlight the paint looks like it has a brown tinge... probably going to end up respraying it. i had used duplicolors "Paint Shop" JET BLACK instead of buying the quality stuff from the dealer or having someone mix some up... now i am down 50 bucks but hey whatever it was a good experience

DO NOT fill the gouges with bondo. Use Resin

ok, i was going to do a skim coat then go over it with bondo to seal the fiberglass but i will just use straight resin. i just need a reeeeaaaally light coat the gouge didn't get past the gel coat
