I used a right angle grinder with a sanding disk to remove the paint. Came right off.

I need to order the adhesive, it'* like $40 a tube at Eastwood. I figured I would buy it local, walked in, and there was the very same stuff. At $70 a tube. It might be a few weeks now. Buying it is easy, slipping it past my wife is hard when I have to order it.

My epoxy came yesterday.

So I took the scoop off and wiped everything down good.

Then I applied the epoxy to the hood. I went with the slow setting epoxy, 90-120 set time, instead of teh fast stuff which was only a few mins. Good thing, it took a while to get it all out and spread out.

Then laid the scoops down and lined up the holes.

Tomorrow I will use the other tube and fill in around the edges and feather it out best I can. That way I use as little bondo as possible.

Had some free time today so got more work done.

Sanded down the rough spots, got it feathered in rather good. Used the last of the epoxy to fill in a few low spots. I'll sand that down after it sets. Here'* a few shots.

Now just need to wait for it to set and then do a bit of sanding.

I'll get a few more pictures, the battery went dead. Man, that kitty fur sets up fast. Don't mix a lot at a time.
