    Thank you so very much! I will follow this and let you know how I get on. Really do appreciate the guideance. Even if it does crack it's a learning experience for me.
  4. Hello guys I'm struggling to find info on what's best to do when painting my bonnet. Last night I have done about 5 coats of 1k etch primer (p961). Should I wet and dry sand this before my top coat? Or should I wet and dry the etch primer then use a standard top coat primer on that before applying the actual top coat? Heard stories of people applying top coat on the etch primer and ends up flaking off. I can't find any info on weather I can apply top coat on the etch primer Any help would be great. Thought I would post on here before going to paint shop and asking them. Thanks, Alex.

    Respraying stainless steel bonnet?

    I thought about wrapping as when I first got a car I wrapped the dash etc. But I reckon id struggle wrapping the bonnet with it having all the vents. I've not looked at powder coating, but it's a fab idea! Is the paint quite flexible if that makes sense? As i wouldn't want it cracking/flaking as the Bonnet is only thin stainless

    Cheers mate I'll consider this
  8. Hey guys got myself a robin 2b with a 2.3 turbo saab in. Bodywork needs a lot of tidying and after resprsying the whole lot. I'd like to spray the bonnet but unsure on primers etc. I may just get it done at shop unless it's relatively simple job as I have a small spray booth at work. Anyone got experience doing this?
