    someone at backed into the car at the gym.
    On car-parts.com i found a same color front fender but the hood i had to paint to match (bright red).

    Cleaning the paint gun I had some extra urethane enamel paint left over. the paint was activated with the hardener so not re usable. I put it in a cup outside to cure, its toxic as a liquid. Toss the solid paint in the trash:

    -it dried really odd texture, more solid than jello, kinda squishy tho.
    -it cured into a solid mass exactly the same volume as when it was liquid. It was absolutely blood red.



    other thoughts
    I dont think i will use a single stage paint again.

    At first glance, I thought someone was describing their new STD symptoms icon_eek.gif

    I don't use a sprayer for toxic urethane paints - I used the "roll & tip" method to do the whole boat. Came out pretty good, at least from four feet away. I actually got dizzy one time because it was so smooth that, even standing right there on the ladder, I could not see the edge of the boat against the sky. When I came back with the camera, the sky was getting a little hazy and spoiled the effect a bit:

    icon_rolleyes.gifmost automotive paint is super toxic, not so much primers or filler.
