The lower inside of one of my doors has bondo, so the texture is gone. Has anyone tried to spray lightly with wrinkle paint, then topcoat with color? I'm not sure which would look worse, a smooth area, or an overly aggresive area. Any suggestions?

It's the lower inside of my emberglo car. I don't know if the door used to have speakers or what. But it has a 4 inch round bondo area just under the door panel in the front corner. The rest of the door is really nice, as I've blasted it clean. It just bugs me that it won't be perfect when I'm done. Would you try to produce the texture, or leave it smooth?

Read somewhere that what you do is spray the area then while it's wet you press a piece if vinyl with a
grain design into the paint and peel off, supposed to leave the imprint in the paint. Never tried it.

emberglow is a kinda medium to dark paint, probably would show up.

i have thought about making a mold by pouring something on a stripped door, like an epoxy or something. and then use this to press in soft plastic on the spot you need to repair.

I think that's a pretty good idea (pressing in the vinyl). I would think as soon as the paint is set but can still pick up thumbprints (you know what I mean -- we've all done it), that's the perfect time.

Have you considered covering the doorpanel with vinyl? Mustangs and Fords Mag did an article on this a while back. It would definitely solve your problem. If I were you, that is what I would do.
