Painting the Bonnet
I know they are some hybrid plastic material, My spray man is having all sorts of reaction issues with bonnet, Obviously i told him it needed prepping on some way to ensure the bonnet was able to take paint, but 2 sessions latter and still issues, its being flatted rather than stripped the bonnet so its just being sanded back to perviousl original coats of primer and base coat...................... so in effect its old paint the new paint is applied onto
is it just the case this special preparation process is only important if you sand it back down to the factory level where it started out in life ......................... or does it still need this special preparation even if its paint onto flatted / sanded old paint ??
issue is silicone reaction i think he said right in middle of bonnet 12" square reaction
its a proper body shop garage he assures me its just unlucky its nothing to do with his expertise it happens on occasion he said and its nothing to do with the GTV bonnet material ??
If it all seems under control..............your not going fast enough !!
