Time is coming up where my front end needs painting.

I have done a bit of search and read a few project car threads and i have come up with this.

I get the body parts. Sand them down so they are smooth.

I thought of covering them in bog to fill in little holes.

Sand the bog smooth.

I then Prime/Undercoat it.

do i sand the prime down or leave it????

I then get about 1 - 2 L of acrylic paint coulour matched to Dynamic White, a non-metallic paint.

I put 2-5 coats of this on.

do i give it a sand with 1200/2000 wet n dry and use lots of water???

Then do i cut and polish???


Then all parts on and its all good..

Thanks for any replies guys...unless they are stupid. [/b]
