it's never run I can rub the crap out of it and it doesn't come off. the only time it will run is when you first start to rust it just take the hood off for a while let it get nice and rusty then put it back on [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
and por 15 makes a clear that will hold on rust

hundreds of hours?

maybe a bit of a high number, but in reality, i've seen people get old beat trucks that they want all metal (no fillers) take 100hrs per panel to get straight and smooth. difference is, they aren't trying to hammer the variations out of a weld. you would weld, grind, weld, grind, weld, grind, etc. trying to get all the little pits and imperfections out. you'd have to be an extremely good metal fabricator to pull it off.
hey man so im into the rusty hood too. i know how to rust it i just dont know how to get rid of the paint on my hood. i tried a metal brush and it just scratched the hell out of it. i tried a scraper and it only scratched, it didnt get under the paint.
HOW DO I GET RID OF THE PAINT AND GET TO THE BARE METAL?
1. The Vortex is full of Brand Name Whores ,It's not their fault, That's how they were raised
2. What i post is strictly my opinion, If you don't like it go cry to your mother, even though she hates you too
-I have a hood at home that was keyed pretty bad, it's dented to so; perfect to try this out..
The paint was fairly easy to strip. I used some "heavy paint and varnish remover" (the gel), a putty knife, and then a razor blade for the little stuff left over.
I'm at the part where I need to chose how I'm going to get the hood to rust evenly... and hopefully!ending up looking like this mk3's hood http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...Thread/page477 (scroll down)
Anybody find out a good way to do this???

I repreped it tho
gona' try again
Take a bunch of nails put them in water for a few days, filter out the rust and mix with aluminum shavings( from machine shop) and magnesium shavings put it all over your hood and light it on fire with a small torch (like camping propane torch at wal mart)
Be sure the hood is still on the car
