Thanks guys. Once again you've been a lot of help, as always. I'll post an update when I hit my hood with it. It should do wonders for that too

Told you the way to go was using poly primer. Are u dry sanding or wet sanding ? When u get really dry spots wet sand them it will help and make it easier. Also don't over lap remember to give your self flash time between coats. I had to get a timer and make my self wait till it was time. I know you can get really happy once that poly starts flowing right.

P.s while waiting between coats take a mixing stick and mix your primer in the cup. It keeps it.from drying. Also give the trigger a little pull every few min to keep the tip from drying and clogging up.

I am dry sanding with 180.

It was 90 here yesterday. I put the car in the sun to bake the poly so if it wanted to do any shrinking it could before I was completely done with my blocking. I noticed that when warm (even in the shade) it sands a lot softer and was actually loading my sandpaper. Two things that don't happen in cooler temps.
