 Re: Thick paint
I just started paint stripping my spare GX bonnet to re paint and put on my granny cruiser and Ive found five layers of paint. A cream, a few layers of primer and the original colour which was a light yellow... would have looked good in its day.

Mine has about that many layers but they are all safari yellow!

Lucky you, 2 gx bonnets, i'm hanging out for the fibre gx bonnets. Is the stocker getting a full respray or just the bonnet?
