Need help with paint lifting


New member
Hey Guys, I have a molded in color(orange) tractor hood
that I am having troubles getting paint to not lift. Lays down well on the
painted steel part of the hood. Using HOK base coat urethane with a medium
reducer. Sanded with 800 and good cleaning with wax and grease remover.I can
only spray a dusting at a time spray. Even slightly over a mist and it lifts. Im
thinking it is the molding release agent from when being maufactured. What can I
use to seal this?

Thanks Chris

If it mold release, always wash the **** outta it w/ acetone first. use a quality 2 part sealer before paint. no matter the end result, if you can't pump it on wet it will always come back to bite you in the ass.
