Overspray on underside of Hood
« on: October 09, 2008, 10:38:02 AM »
Hi All,

The underside of my hood has a very small amount of Gold oversray on it around the cowl and upeer side edges. Was this a typical from the factory?

The black dip-primed hood, fenders, and header panel were mounted on a conveyor buck in car position with about a 1" gap between the panels when they were sprayed with body color; the outer edges of the vertical weld flange on the hood got full coverage, but very little or no body color normally showed on the inboard side of the hood flange.
