Question EDP Coating on AMD Hood?

Can this EDP coating be lightly 00 steel-wooled and painted over?

Going 3M 1080 Matte Black Mask Film on top,
with a quality Satin Black finish for underhood.

2nd Q.

Lacquer or Acrylic for the Satin Black?

Thanks much!

Do you trust an unknown quantity chineseum "primer" to be the basecoat of your nice paint?

I wouldn't.

Re: EDP Coating on AMD Hood?

I had a local sandblasting company remove the "chineseum primer" using shells that will remove the coating but not remove rust on some of these repo Chinese parts. It was amazing to see the surface rust that was covered up by the "chineseum primer".

I will NEVER use any of the Chinese parts without stripping and sanding the part down to clean bare metal!

I watch these TV car restoration shows that paint right over this black coating. This doesn't mean its the right thing to do; it only means its the quicker way to paint somebody else's car.

Said parts are produced the the Republic of China (a democracy), which is called Taiwan here in the states - as opposed to the Peoples Republic of China (a communist government) sited on the Asian mainland.

You would be far better off doing a Google search for "EDP Primer," and then make up your own mind based on some folks who are, shall we say "experts."

Re: EDP Coating on AMD Hood?

I replaced most of the sheetmetal with AMD and I took all of the panels to bare metal before laying down epoxy primer. With that being said they wasnt any surface rust underneath my edp coating and im sure I would have been fine scuffing the coating then shooting primer.

The words Quality...Lacquer....Acrylic....don't go hand and hand IMO and never belong in the same sentence.



You can buy Omni Single Stage Urethane in half pint for 20ish bucks, I use it when doing my hammer restorations, and the hardener for around 16 if I remember right, it mixes 4:1 or 4:1:1/2.
So for 40-45 bucks you can have something far superior then that junk that went out of style 30 plus years ago.

Currently working on How to videos and replacement sheetmetal panels

Re: EDP Coating on AMD Hood?

I bought an AMD 2 inch cowl hood a couple months ago, my body guy removed all the edp coating, no surface rust under it, but on a side note, it had no less then 10 dents in it right out of the box, UPS freight crushed the first 3 I ordered and thought the 4th one was perfect until my body guy started blocking it.

Re: EDP Coating on AMD Hood?

EDP gets removed on restoration work. I've seen corrosion on many panels, even AMD. One little nick and it can walk under the EDP. I do this everyday and there is no way I can trust an EDP coating on a $20-50-100K+ job.
