Rat look R5
« on: 21:30, Thu 19 March 2009 »
Hi guys, i was thinkin of having a rat look bonnet like this
http://corsasport.co.uk/carimages/4995/rust_on_002.jpg
as ive got a horid bonnet anyway it wont hurt to make something of it until i get a nice one.
I was just wondering if anyone knew how to do it.
Is it just a case of really scratching the paint off maybe even blasting it off and leaving it or is there something else to it.

there is a citroen c2 vts that goes to our local cruise in sunderland with a rusted bonnet and he reckons he just sanded the bonet with a da sander (40/80 grit sanding disc) and then he said he had it laquered!

but i dont really know if that would do anything buy applying the laquer

I was gonna say, if done properly that would leave a laquered metal bonnet, that might look pretty good aswell though

Hoffman used to do bare metal frames that were just laqured and looked cool.
And how about instead of sanding the whole bonnet down, just do some racing stripes, and the trucker lady thingy. :D

I mean sand off some 'viper stripes' let it rust and then spray a clear coat on it.
Oh, and Edge was crazy tonight. You should've come out.
