As some of you know there was a group buy of fibre glass bonnets, of which I'm a happy(ish) owner of one.
To clarify that, the quality of the AutoDS bonnets is excellent, to me it looks like what an OEM bonnet would be like if it was made in Fibre Glass, however we all had a few issues with damage during delivery.
Anyway, thats not my question. I intended to paint the bonnet the same colour as the car, that is Speed Red 168 (often called Wine Red).
Speaking to my paint shop, the guy said that he will need to apply quite an amount of paint for this colour to look good and as the whole point of the bonnet is to remove weight, adding a couple of kilos of primer and paint seems to be counter!
So an option is to paint the centre of the bonnet black (preferably matt black) thats effectively between the headlights and the rest the original car colour.
Apparently Matt Black paint covers well and can be kept quite thin - no idea, anyone care to comment?
So I'm not sure how chavey this is?
This is sort of what it might look like
(not yellow obviously)
Thanks in advance
