Start by removing the liner
from the hood. There are 15 round plastic retainers that pull straight
out. You need to clean liner prior to painting. You can use
a nylon bristle brush and air to clean. Note: Brushing the hoodliner may pull the fibers, changing the sharp appearance of the hoodliner. Use caution.
You may use Rust-oleum Flat
Black over the emblem area. Apply two coats. You can then use Tester's
model paint in a tube which can be purchased from a hobby shop ($3.00 per
tube). You can use silver, red and white.
Here is the outlining complete
and ready for some color It takes about 1/2 hour, with 2 coats.
Next, paint white in the flag area, then move on to the red. The red may
soak into the raised fiber. It may take 4-5 coats to look better.
Then, fill in the rest of the colors on the hoodliner. Here is a picture of a completed product. Please refer to the C5 emblem during painting as the picture shown has the checkerboard colors reversed.
