Just bought a kit, plain ol black to recoat my bumpers, rockers, axles, and fender flares hopefully here in the coming weeks as it warms up.
I have a coat of Ace hardwares rust stop paint over everything ( http://images.jmcatalog.com/prdimgs/...EGPAPHS1FB.JPG
). It dried like it should, but its soft enough that i can scrape it off with my fingernails. Normal daily driving and road salt has had rust start to bleed through areas I've used it on, and I was hoping I could use monsta to cover everything up. I coating everything with that paint when it was new (when I built the bumpers/sliders/etc), and there was no rust on them at the time.
Only thing I'm worried about is taking a scuff pad doesn't really seem to do much to the paint. Wire brushing, or using flap disc/grinding wheel on the grinders just seems to chunk it off or clog the wheels up in 10 seconds. Its almost like a hard candle wax coating (which I didn't want to begin with).
So where do I go from here? I hate to just go over it, but then have the monstaliner crack/flake off or something if the paint underneath comes off. On the other hand, I dont really have a way of stripping everything either...
And I tried searching, but I ordered fiberglass fender flares (notch customs, similar to the iceland offroad ones that used-to-be), I assume just hit them with adhesion promoter and go to town?
No rush on this stuff as it'll be awhile before I get everything in line to get it coating, thanks in advance for the help!
