The top and hood had to be sanded down to bare metal which bumped the cost. Total was $2,100.Mind sharing what you paid? my clear coat is shot on the hood and upper fender flares, best quote so far is $1,300 (dfw)
That is exactly what my paint guy saidI'm sure being as the hood is aluminum was the reason they had to get the base clean and oxide free to get such a beautiful finish.
I tried that on my wife's car - never could get it to smooth out and shine. Didn't look bad, just could not get the shine.My rattle-canned 2k clear coat job is making me real jealous of how yours came out! I can't believe how shiny it looks!
My paint was already oxidized from the lack of clear coat, and I can't get the new clear coat I sprayed on to shine no matter how much I polish/ wet sand it down...
