scotchbrite prep

I just saw your posting and I am a Painter by trade for over 40 years now( whew)!!!! anyway...I would suggest sanding the rock chips out of the hood, primer the area with a good catalyzed primer, sand the primer with 600 and then use both 1000 and a grey scotchbrite with scuff-n-stuff over the entire car and spot repair the edge of the hood with color matched basecoat, blending the new color with a swinging motion up the hood...then clear the whole thing....nip the dirties out with 2000 and polish....thats what we do out there...the only thing I have a problem with is the r&i of all the mouldings, handles and etc....good luck to you
