Random Hood/Bonnet found at Wreckers Write up.


Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies and Gentleman,

Some of you may have seen a recent post of mine regarding a hood/bonnet found at a local Wrecker.

The back story can be found here: http://www.adamsforums.com/forums/australia/21463.htm

Mook asked if I had taken pictures of the process and I did, so here they are.

Single stage red paints are notorious for this, i did a red 4runner last weekend whole vehicle looked like that hood, first thing the guy said when I dropped it off "Oh my God, its sooooo red" I need to post a thread on it, but my friend took pictures with his nice camera, but forgot the memory card for the initial condition of the 4runner :lolsmack:

 

Quick question though how did you hand the bumps at the front curl of the hood? Just trying to add to my detailing knowledge for when I come across something like that

I find single stage always gives the wow factor once it is all shined up also.

 

The bumps at the front curl of the hood? The rust bumps I avoided like the plague with the Pads on the PC. I gave them little to no attention though.

Ok I figured you did, i just couldn't see if you had corrected them or if you had avoided them

Had to give this thread a bump.

The thread Kevin (MrHot88) started about the rotary and his mention of the upcoming detail he has reminded me about Joseph's amazing turn around with a PC and a drill.
