I guess it is hard to put in words just what I am really after.
I am looking for the best way to protect the metal, which I assume is enough thickness of paint. I am not an experienced painter so I am not hoping to achieve a mirror finish. I am more concerned with having enough paint layed down.Since the hood is kind of lumpy from all it's 'life experiences', I am only hoping to prep the surface of the paint that I have put down. This is so I can put a third coat on it to make sure that even the thinner areas will have enough mils of paint.
If there is a way to wash the surface with a chemical, I would do that rather than trying to sand. If it was OK to just paint over what's there, I'd do that, too. The last coat has been curing for nine days now, so I am not sure whether the next coat would bond well without some form of prep.
