A bit of an update...

I have been working like mad to get the hood fixed, primed, and painted before the temps drop. I patched the underside of the hood and the front edge with the 'glass/resin kit from Napa and followed with spot putty to fill the flaws and cracks. Once that is smoothed I hit it with a can of filler/primer, sanded, and applied another can of filler primer. I hope to sand it again later today and apply the color.

A close-up of the patched and painted area under the hood. Not going for pretty, just strong.

Front edge that was repaired. :smilewink:

This spot was also repaired. :smilewink:

This is was a result of my impatience. The primer was not quite dry and the bucket it sat on left a mark. :(

All done! :thumbs:

The gloss is pretty good on this. Look close and you can see my hands holding the phone taking the picture. :smilewink:

Looking good, Travis! I always paint the underside first. Then less chance of uglies in the show side. But, you are getting there!

Which one? The 110, the Lawnboy, or the Fury in the background? The 110 is all worker all the time until the 120 is done. My wife said the 120 is going to look so nice I will not want to use it. :smilewink:

Took a look at the hood this morning and one side needs sanded and repainted due to poor coverage. I have the hood in the sun to cure and will give it another coat tomorrow after sanding it with 400 or 600 grit paper.

Travis, The hood repairs are looking really good. Sorry you have to repaint one side, the paint looks slick.

Are you using rattle cans or a paint gun?

I am using rattle cans. Those who have inspected my work in person say that I am doing an great job with cans. I am using this a practice to prepare me for painting the white Fury that is lurking in the background.
