The leading edge of my Mk3 bonnet has suffered over the years from stone, chips, etc. I have filled, attempted to colour match and top-coated, and although the finish has been just about acceptable, now, all these blemishes are bleaching and it looks like (expletive deleted.)
In the past, I have done a lot of spraying but had the full Monty; trying to work with rattle cans is not good news. But I guess I have little choice unless spending for a body shop to respray the entire bonnet.
I am aware that different paints do not always bond well with existing paint, so don't really know how to solve the issue.
If I rub down a section of the bonnet and apply the colour coat, it is a single pack paint onto generally, the original 2k top-coat and adhesion, in theory should not be good.
Once dry, flatten, including a larger are of the original top-coat and apply the new top-coat. But again, this will probably be from a rattle can, and not fully compatible with the original 2k. So how does it bond together such that when dry, I can w&d back to get a nice polish that will not bleach in one year time?
Alternatively, is it possible to find a company that supplies 2k colour and top-coat and I can attempt a proper job? My 2k searching generally tells me that as a private individual, I cannot buy it.
