After the comments of many, i decided to paint up my bonnet lifters.
Most of the lifters are fine. I think one is pretty problem free. The other has began to crack. I only applied it about an hour or so ago
* Why is it cracking? surely not due to grease or whatever on the surface? I gave the entire lifter a good wipe down with warm soapy water & the rest of it isn't cracking. I did the same when doing my grille & that didn't crack either.
* Can i just plod on & paint tomorrow or does this need to be tended to? Do i have to sand it right back until the metal is showing?
Only difference is i painted it in the shed, wheras i've done all the other work (the grille) in the house. But it's a warm enough day & the rest of the lifter seems fine.
Would prefer to get the priming dealt with today as i was planning on painting tomorrow, lacquer on thurs, fit on Friday which is when i'm away for the weekend.
