Had some guys ask me about how i done my bonnet.

Before:



Tips from this forum helped loads.
Key is preparation and patience.(Believe me, i just wanted to get it done!)

Tools i used:









1. A good wash, with washing up liquid.
2. Rinse off with cold water.
3. Dry with lint free cloth.
4. Use degreasing wipes etc. (Get rid of any polish/wax)
5. Dry with lint free cloth.
6. Scrape away any loose rust, chunks etc. (Using paint scraper and wire brush)
Need to get to bare metal/rust as much as possible.
Had a hole, near the R/H headlight.
7. Use paint/dust brush to remove fine dust etc.
8. Brush Jenolite/Kurust on liberally to affected areas.
Leave for 15-30 minutes.
9. Apply a further thin coating, then wipe dry immediately.
Apply another coating if required. (I didn't)
Leave for 30 minutes, ready for body filler.
10. Apply body filler(Read Instructions on guide).
I used half a tin on the bonnet, because of the rust and the hole.
The other half, was for the passenger door.
Wait for it to dry completely.(Sticks to the sandpaper, otherwise)
11. Using an electric sander (easier), sand down as close as possible without
stripping all your hardwork with the bodyfiller.
12. Give the affected areas a good wash with wasing up liquid again.
13. Use 1200/1500 wet&dry paper to finely sand it down. (Soak the sandpaper for 10mins beforehand)
14. Give the affected areas a good wash with wasing up liquid again.
15. Rinse off with cold water.
16. Dry with lint free cloth.
17. Use degreasing wipes etc.
18. Dry with lint free cloth.
19. Bodywork ready for priming etc.

Other tutorials show you how to do the priming and painting.

After:





Total Cost = £40 (Still have some bits left over)
