Paint is very important in a car. It is essential so as to avoid rust from being produced due to exposure of the exterior metal to different and extreme weather conditions over some time. A car’s paint contributes a lot in the looks of a car since it is what is primarily noticed at first glance. Who won’t stop and take a second look when a shiny and clean-looking vehicle passes by?

We usually flaunt our car when it is new. That is since the paint has not been bruised or scratched much yet.

However, it is not just the exterior portion of the car that is painted. Some auto parts need new paint as well.

Painting is a bit crucial due to air formation when you don’t know how to do it properly. For that, I obliged myself to know how professionals strategically do the job. So, I have found the answer from ehow.com. Let me share it with you.

Before the procedure, we sure secure the availability of the following materials:

  • Primer
  • Spray paint
  • Micro fiber towel
  • 300 grit sandpaper
  • 800 grit wet sand paper
  • 2000 grit wet sand paper
  • Clearcoat
  • Wax

If all of which are available you can now start by removing the part that needs to be painted. Taping it around can also be done. But, be cautious about overspray. The next things would be:

 

  1. Sand the part with 300 grit sand paper. Do it until the surface becomes a little rough, necessary to keep the primer bonded with the surface. Afterwards, use the micro fiber towel to wipe down the sanded area. It is to remover small particles that have been scratched.
  2. You are now ready to lightly spray the part with a primer. It should be few light coats and not one heavy. Then, allow proper drying time between each coat.
  3. Wet sand the part using the 800 grit sand paper. Wipe it again with micro fiber towel.
  4. Apply the color. When spraying, make sure you use smooth even passes across what is being painted. It is important not to start painting on top of the part. That is because the pain will be heavier in that area. On the other hand, when painting, you need to press and release the button to the side of the product being painted. Apply the same process of having few light coats than one heavy and the proper drying time between each coat.
  5. If you think the color is enough, wet sand with 800 grit sandpaper. Then, wipe again with micro fiber towel.
  6. Clear coat application. The process is the same as with the spray paint. But, only one or two light coats are needed. Make sure you give it plenty of time to dry as it is the layer that you people will see most.
  7. After drying the clear coat, wet sand it with 2000 grit sand paper. It is necessary to remove any heavier spots in the clear coat. It also polishes the painted product.
  8. Add few coats of wax to the surface of the part, regardless if it’s exterior or interior portion. It is provided as a protectant for the clear coat. It gives a nice smooth feel and even helps repel dirt.

Now, your car or any part of it is as stunning as new.
