Hi, everyone – I’m not to the point of having everything painted yet, but looking ahead, do people leave the fiberglass inside the bonnet, boot etc. just as it comes from Alan, or do you prime it, paint it, or ? Interested to hear your suggestions.
Life’s too short to go painting under the bonnet Eric.
Get the engineering sorted, paint what shows when she’s running right.
It’s very satisfying building, even more fun when you get out on the road. Get the priorities right!
I have painted all the raw fibreglass surfaces because it seals any porosity and smooths any needle-like strands – but mainly to stop any moisture getting into the weave. Didn’t take long as the finish is not imprtant. Just a brush and gloss type of paint, really work it into the surface and overbrush to the desired quality.
