    I was just wondering if spray painting a body part would make a future "real" paint job look any worse? I have about three different colors on my rex and I dont want to officially paint it until I get all the dents and such out, but I would like to have it fewer than three colors. I figure I could sand it real hard when it comes time to paint, but Id like to know from someone who knows for sure. THX

    Sand it, strip it chemically, prime it again, these all work.... paint is not permanent so I say go for it.

    fuck chemical strippers.

    you'll be fine though. when it comes time to paint again, just sand through the layer of spray-paint you previously put on.

    NO


    scuff the hood with 600 then spay with colourd primer (you can tint primer to any colour you choose)
    If you clean it well and do good prep before, their will be no need to sand it all off before a repaint
