Need Some Guidance With A Resin Hood
Posted 16 November 2007 - 10:20 AM
1. What is the best way to repair this crack?
2. What preparation is required before the part can be painted? I've heard that resin parts need to soaked in the cleaner used to clean white lettering on 1:1 tires.

For prepping the resin, I'm not in favor of soaking it in cleaner. I've had problems occur with doing that. I use a good soap or detergent and use a toothbrush with warm (not too hot) water and just start scrubbing. Then I wash it off and then use alcohol which is at least 91% and wipe it down, but not soaking it. (I prefer denatured alcohol.) Then let it airdry. Put a good primer on and go through the steps of painting.
Hope this helps.
