Thread: How long without paint.

  1. #1

    How long without paint.


    I need to sand my bonnet, bumper and grill down ready for respraying. Now i'll have to do it a different day to when its getting sprayed. How long will it be ok without a coat of paint? I got told by the bloke doing it it will be fine for a week or so.

    I know the bumper/grill would be fine. But bonnet...wouldnt it rust

    if you are going to rub the bonnet down and leave it until it is sprayed ,I would advise you get some primer on it even if it is a spray can job.

    with the weather we are having atm It wont take long for the salt that is on the roads to start reacting with the metal.
