E21 316: Bonnet + Badge Paint Cracking - sorted!


The bonnet looks like it's been resprayed before and the paint is cracking and flaking off at the edges of the bulge, but no sign of rust.

Even the un-flaked bits had small paint bubbles so the whole length of the edges needed rubbing down and a quick skim of filler going on.

There was still original red paint under the badge, but it was cracked and had corrosion beginning below so it all came off.

Dad then finished off the bulge-edges with his keen artist's eye and put a skim of filler into the badge-recess and smoothed the curve.

Quick blast of primer - job done!
