|#44: June 17nd, 2011 - Prepping the Cobra R Fiberglass Hood...|
When the fiberglass Cobra R hood was soda blasted, there was quite a bit of paint and primer left on the hood. This is because they want to avoid damaging the gel coat at all cost.
The result is that some sanding needs to be done to get a smooth surface.
grit sandpaper on the DA sander was used to remove the paint and primer
without damaging the gel coat. There is one bad crack and hundreds of
pinholes in the hood that will need to be addressed when the bodywork
on the exterior of the car is done.|

hood needed some attention underneath also. There was a coating of
light gray primer coating it that I was not previously aware of. Due to
the irregular surfaces, a majority of the hood had to be sanded by hand
using a red ScotchBrite Pad.|
You can see the remains of the primer around the part number.
