    Default New vynal top

    When I bought my CX the vynal roof was stuffed, so I ripped it off easing it out from under the rubber around the windscreen & sun roof, sanding the old glue off as best as I could. went to the hardware shop & bought some copper hammer tone paint in a spray can, times two, gave it a couple of coats & it do'nt look too bad. Cheap as dirt n looks good.

    I tried to get a paint from the local pannel beater & he didnt know of a product to fit the bill.

    I wanted something flat & lumpy for the real effect, short of crincle paint (collect to mutch dirt) Hammer finish seems the way to go for a cheap fix.

    When I get some more money I will buy a can of the paint on stuff & this will fill in the sanding marks that the spray did'nt cover.

    There's a product called "Oneshot", it's a primer/filler. A good few heavy coats of this through a putty gun (or even normal spray gun) is magic. Once it's dry mist a light coat of your pressure pack paint over it (so it's covered effectively in overspray).

    Now set your son to work with some wet and dry, he needs to sand all the pressure pack paint off with some wet&dry sandpaper. Once it's all gone (big circles remember when sanding) the roof will be perfect with no scratches/nicks/marks.

    Now try your top coat again... You'll be impressed ...
