holes, like right through like in my case, you stone chip holes?, If its holed right threw, id have to say forget it, it takes some specialzed stuff to do it right and i dont think its availiable for retail sale(nore is the gun used to despence/mix it) if its just bad chipping, sand it fill then, sand smoth, have patiance, prime paint

Wow, this is really interesting to see the progress. I have always thought it would be fun to learn how to paint a car and someday become good at it, so this is interesting for me to see. Looking forward to seeing the final product and the contrast to where it is now.

Way to go, Peter.

As I have said before, you are getting to do what almost everyone here would like to have done.

Refinishing the Bonne up to the level of finish that you will have when you are done, is fantastic.
