Hey Ross, Sure appreciate your efforts (and the others, as well), in trying to point me in the right direction. I am hoping to find some good enough days (weatherwise) to try to redo the paint on the 3G sheetmetal and get things lined out, to be ready, when Spring hits. I will DEFINITELY have the hood done by someone who knows what they are doing.

Guess I wasn't too clear, about what my problem was, sorry bout that.

Me too, Ken. I coped the input from here and started a page of that info, so I can refer back more easily.

Ross, You could very well be hearing from me and, possibly some of the others AND the advice will be well appreciated, I can promise you.

Thanks for that too.

Thanks Ken. When I can get to it AND the weather is somewhat respectable, I hope to get it taken care of and need all the help I can get.

Never color sand a metallic before applying clear. The appearance of the flakes will be altered affecting the appearance once the clear is applied. Color sanding should be done after 2-3 coats of clear with proper dry time between them and time for the clear to harden. Soft paint will tear and then you will have to start over.

Most people who struggle with lack of gloss are applying the paint to dry. Slow down and put more material on until the surface looks completely wet. This is an art, too much material, the wrong reducer or bad temperatures will result in runs. polishing dry paint is brutal, if you have a run in the clear, it can be sanded out.

Appreciate your input here Kevin. I'm hoping that others will benefit from the input on this thread, just as I will. It ALL helps.
