I found a Cub Demonstrator with a damaged tank/hood. Rather than trying to restore the tank/hood I opted to use a tank/hood from a '52 Cub. My issue is the white tank/hood show light splotches of red (pinkish) coming through the white. The tank/hood was taken down to the bare metal so I cannot understand how red is coming through. Any suggestions what to do? Thanks. JRTB

Wow that is strange then, was the spray gun cleaned real good? I cannot think of a reason red would bled through.

I hate to admit it, but it was actually done twice and it still bled through! I have been told to put the primer in the paint and then I was told to use acid dipping. It is very frustrating.

If you put the primer in the paint it will change the paint color, you could see if you local radiator shop can fit the hood in their cleaning tank that should take off any and all paint. Are these bleed throughs all over or just in a few spots?

i realize this is an old post but will give my take on it.  you most likely left a very thin coating of the original primer. what you can do is either strip to bare metal  or use a bleed chek  sealer. i've only seen this problem on old style paint, very rarely see that with the modern coating, this type of bleeding usually only happens when you paint white over red with alkyd enamels
