I made that strip before Ed suggested it.  It beat making the saddle, which I ended up making a partial anyway.
 
Finish this touch up, several layers of filler primer, 320 grit, paint and you'd hardly even know.  I'll probably forget it's there.  Damn. . . I rust proofed the channels.  I have to redo that I guess.

I have to throw a few more coats of filler primer on and sand it smooth.  That will get rid of the fewdivits you might see.

The HOOD Finale
 

 
The following were taken with the hood open.  This is the outside of the hood where I had that dent.  I managed to camouflage slight kink in the hood.  How it will look against the fender, I'll find out soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
My Gun decided to spit water.  Even with the filter/separator right at the gun.  And I'm out of paint now.  Bummer.

Aaah.the joys of driveway restorations..
Good recovery on the hood--even though it cost you a few days progress.
If your shop is not heated, condensation will build up much quicker in your compressor and lines can become a problem no matter how many filters and driers you have.
 
I had my compressor freeze on me once and popped the fuse.
Once it thawed and remained in the heated portion of my shop,it was fine.
Being in an unheated environment,it built up moisture much faster than normal.
 
I would suggest draining your tank before doing any painting

Gee Lea. . Thanks for the compressed air lesson 101.  LOL

The garage is heated.  And it is a common practice to bring in cold air from outside.



What causes the water is running the compressor hot, it compressed the humidity.  As the air travels through the hose, it WILL discharge water unless you pre-dry the air.  Pre-drying the air is done either with refrigeration or desecants. 

In my case, I drain the tanks daily, drain the separators, and in this case, used an inline oil/water separator.  I have no idea how it happened other than maybe the water was trapped in the hose.  How that much got through is a mystery  As long as it wasn't on the hood, I'm happy

warm air / cold hose condensed the water into the hose just before the gun.....

The trick is to cool the air before it goes through the drier. I use a coil of copper tubing that I put in a 5 gallon bucket full of cold water. This way the air is cooled and all the condensing is done before it hits the drier. When I do this NO water out the gun, Ever! azblackhemi2010-11-29 10:05:53

I know all this.  I have a ABSORBTION SEPERATOR AT THE GUN.  I never had a problem before yesterday.  I just don't understand why it did it with all the precautions. 
 
Not going to worry about it, just sand the paint and reshoot it.  No biggy

Bahhhh  Chinese junk!  I took the filter off the gun and found a wade of grease in the threaded port.  That's where it came from.  It was grease!
 
Oh well. . .   Tomorrow it's going to be close to 60, so I'll paint the hood

You can get some "smoothie" or other form of "fisheye" remover at any body shop supply place. Not only does it remove fisheyes,it causes the paint to run out a little better after you lay it on the panel. I've got one of those huge decatent driers in the garage as i spray lots and it is sure nice to have.
It's lookin' good steve.

I have all that too Glen.  It's so cold out it refrigerates the air lower than the dew point in the desiccants.  This was grease in the filter on the gun.  It absorbers oil and moisture right before the trigger.  Like I said,  No biggie.  Sand it and paint it again.  Oh Well!
 
As far as fish eye eliminator is concerned, this Nasson 2K Polly paint does not like it.  I was advised NOT to use it by the body shop supply.  Sessile, the guy at the supply, has been selling me paint for 40 years.  Hell, he's 70.  I was told by a few bodyshop firends, I am the only one who can make him smile.
 
The colder air is stretching the total cure time from 72 hours to 96 hours.  It takes a week to see any flaws in the job.  The big key with this stuff is to lay light coats.  So it can take 4 shoots to get a mirror finish.
 
Right now, I have blown several coats of filler primer on the hood and probably 320'd more than half of it off.  Tomorrow moring, I will hit the hood with some 600, wipe and blow, tack rag, and hit the color.  When those inners are dry enough, I'll sand and reblow the color on.  Then I can put the front together mask off the hood and finish the fenders and front pieces.  I'm debating painting the front fenders off the car, as the valance and latch support,  The left front is ready for paint.  The RF needs to be worked yet.   It's been ripped and heavy coats of filler primer.  I see some slight damage that beeds filling.  That fender had damage on it, I had the sheetmetal so close, it's possible the primer took care of it.
