thanks i figured if it wouldnt work ok i could take some old 5 gallon propane tanks and actually plumb them into the 10/13 gallon compressor for more capacity

i checked the hood today and the paint is a lil soft still if i press really hard with my fingernail i can leave a slight impression in the paint,so im going to wait a few more days before the final wetsand and buff on the hood

i ende dup picking a cheap polisher at walmart for 19bucks hopefully that will be enough for the final buff and polish

once i get that hood fully done ill be diciding wether or not im going to continue with the rustoleum or not my friend has a portable media blaster i can use to strip the car come spring time so if i do continue that will save me alot of work

fellow board member on tgo just did this for a 24 hours of lemons race no wetsanding or anything and i like it so i think ima switch from the blue to the black, if his can look that good without wetsanding or polishing mine should look just fine for a temporary paint job

yanked th4e hood back off the car now with a somewhat glossy paint on the car i can se ejust how bad my hood is in terms of low and high spots. its so bad im actually going to get a new fiberglass hood. the fiberglass hood was going to be bought down the road anyways, just need to figure out if i need a 4 or 6 inch outlaw hood to clear the upcomming heads/intake combo

anyways im in the middle of wetsanding it, the paint knocks down flat and smooth as glass easily, though im having a hard time bringing the shine back.
the buffer i biught at walmart isnt the greatest either it spinds really slow and has like no power to it.

ill throw up some pictures when i get a lil more done

If you think the high and low spots on it are bad the fiberglass hood isn't going to be any better...in fact it might be worse. Fiberglass hoods require quite a bit of work.

oh i know my friends ss hood took many many hours of work to get it flat and stright. my next engine combo is going to require a cowl hood anyways so i may as well just get it now

anyways i got the paint flat and started to get the shine back, the orbital buffer i got just isnt upto the job, i got better results by hand.

i had a friend helping me and he sanded threw the paint on me so im just going to ruff up the blue a lil and do the black and add some wetlook harder to it to see what that comes out like for now

ill snap some pi cs of the area i have finished though so u guys can see how it came out

well i just home for lunch and took a look at the hood.
the black is so much nicer, and i dont understand why.
for one its layed down flat as a piece of glass, i thinned it the same as i did the blue and im using the same brand roller that i used with the blue, but there is zero orange peel or roller marks

the only downside is i did a crappy job when i sanded the blue so theres alot of sanding scratches in the black, hopefully as i wetsand each coat and apply more they will come out

Lacquer thinner

Sorry, I'm a late comer to this thread but, you ROLLED that on??? Dude, you are onto something! And as for the critics who complain that it will be soft and impossible to sand off later, don't worry; don't even use sandpaper. Lacquer thinner will take it off effortlessly.

foam roller and a lil foam brush is all im using. i have a spare rear bumper cover that i also painted ill have to get pics of that.

i set it on jackstands and scuffed it a lil bit and put one coat on it, no runs or anything on the vertical surfaces and it came out just like the hood.
i will say getting all the lil creases and inset sections were a pita though if i had goten a lil wider foam brush it prolly wouldnt have been that bad

You raise a good point.

2K automotive primers and paints can also be rolled on but won't need to come off later.

The biggest argument for using this junk is that spray equipment is not available. Get a roller and half decent material and go to it.

Of coarse its thicker than water, but it will still roll on.
If you're trying to get thru winter, roll on a coat of epoxy primer and you'll be ready in the spring to shoot paint without the hassle of stripping the whole car.

Why not try rolling some color as well?
If it won't lay down smooth enough to sand out, you could spray it on later.
