Got the rough sanding all done this evening used my multi tool with 80 grit paper to work everything down to even. I feel pretty good about the overall job considering it was my first time using fiberglass. I want to go over everything with 300&400 grit paper. Then check for any low spots that would need to be filled in and hopefully be ready for primer. Stay tuned

This is a long over due post. I finally found sometime yo get back at the 110 hood. First coat of tallamans green is finally on. Any recommendations for moving forward are greatly appreciated, sand or don't sand between coats? Any other tips let me know. Thanks

Looks pretty good. When i did my 140 hood i put 2 coats of green on, wet sanded with 1000 grit, another coat, wet sanded with 1500 grit, another coat of green then 2000 grit, then final coat. It turned out beautiful. i used spray bombs on mine.

I don’t sand between coats unless there is a problem. If I want a glossier finish I also sand with a 1500 and buff out. If your happy with it leave it alone.
When it dries just go over it with a polish and it’ll look even better.
Nice job Brett. Now about the deal on a lonely 200 ....
