fiberglass parts don't need primer...except when block sanding to get them straight for paint. A new piece should have been black and somewhat shiney shouldn't it? I know they are never perfectly straight but they usually look pretty good.At least the Harwood stuff does.

JUST MY POINT, IT WAS STRAIGHT, LIKE I SAID ALL I DID WAS PRIMER IT. THEY ARE ALL PAINTED FROM THE FACTORY BEFOR THEY LEAVE, CALL IT PRIMER OR SEALER. SOME TIMES IT IS APLIED TO THE MOLDS FIRST, IT DEPENDS ON THE PROCES USED. ALL FIBERGLASS PARTS HAVE BONDO IN THEM WHEN THEY CUT OFF THE EXCESS FIBERGLASS AND MOLD JOINTS. SOME DO A BETTER JOB THAN OTHERS. KEN

I am glad someone finally got something from Troy. I never got my hood or money back. Consider yourself lucky!

AFTER FINALY SEEING ALL OF THE "BAD" POSTS AND THE FACT THAT HE SCREWED ME OUT OF $175 FOR SHIPPING FOR THE 4" COWL HOOD AND DECK LID THAT WAS SUPOSED TO COME WITH THE FRONT END IN MAY, THAT FINALY CAME IN OCTOBER. SEE MY AVITAR. IT WAS NICE BUT WHEN THE UPS DELIVERED IT I HAD TO PAY FOR SHIPPING. I CALLED HIM AND HE SAID IT WAS A SCREW UP BY UPS AND TO JUST PAY FOR IT AND HE WOULD SEND A CHECK, IT WAS NOT A SCREW UP ON UPS PART, HE SENT IT COD. I WAITED SINCE MARCH FOT IT AND IT WAS IN FRONT OF ME SO I PAID IT, THEN FAXED A COPY OF THE SHIPPING BILL TO BE REIMBERSED, NEVER TO SEE MY MONEY. NOW HE IS BACKRUPT. I FEEL VERY LUCKY TO HAVE MY PARTS AND FEEL SORRY FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO WERE SCREWED BY HIM. IF I HAD ONLY KNOWN ABOUT THIS FORM BEFOR ORDERING IN MARCH OF 07'. KILLER KEN
