Plastikote primer is notorious for not being the best , you sometimes get that reaction with it's own brand paints , You cant go wrong with Halfords own brand . I only use plastikote metalics

Duly noted vod! :)

Well guys I've come back swingin'!

Sanded all the junk off it, and found a really well smoothed bucket underneath
So took the dive and had primed it. Found a few rough bits. Sanded them down. Then today I primed it again. And looking at it, I saw it was pretty dang good. So I decided to paint it black, as a first coat of colour.

Up next I'm gonna give it another coat of black, then mask off the stripes, and buy myself the greens and bronze colour that I need, and get to work.

So I masked off the inside of the cheeks (the bits that'll remain dark green)
And I got some Green spraypaint. But to lighten it, and to give me another layer of weathering colour, I got yellow too.
Bright. Yellow.
So yeah, I gave it a blast of the yellow, and now I'm waiting on it drying out before giving it another coat.
Still not 100% on the final design, but I included a picture I took of the bonnet of a Kia I saw, and liked.

Maybe incorporate something like that
Anyhoo yeah
That's me so far!

Still got no idea where to go with this, I was ok with the Green idea, but seeing it black made it look totally kicksheb.

XD Thanks Uncle ConDar :P
I've got a bit of crazing going on with the paint, but I'll probably be able to sand that off and claim it as "weathering" XD

Ach it'll be alright on the night haha! :P
