whats going on everyone and welcome back to another episode of

paint

society the channel where learning doesnt stop when the video ends now in this episode we are going to attack how to fix that faded

paint

in your home garage using a variety of cans of high quality spray so let's go ahead and get started so when we take a closer look at what's actually going on here we can see the base coat is right here and the clear coat is fading on this edge here now it's clear coat is still intact but anywhere you see the fade line is where the clear coat is breaking up and eventually moves down the panel and eventually just the base coat will remain so we need to understand that when doing this job we're just trying to make our paint look better we have a very small budget we don't have fancy compressors fancy paint guns and if we were to take this to a body shop we could be paying at least a thousand dollars to restore these two panels and for a car this age it's just not a good idea to put that much money into the car and to make this repair 100 percent perfect At a body shop you would need to remove all this paint that fades to the metal, condition the metal and rebuild with the appropriate primers. and that's not the kind of project it is and for this job we're going to keep things simple and use the eagle abrasives work pack now the reason i like the work pack is because it's just what you need and not it's a lot of extra paper now this is a k series it comes with k 600 k 800 and k 1200 it also comes with a hand pad which i've already been using and the reason i like k series is because it's a dry paper and it cuts at a much slower speed than it says on the back of the paper eg a k-600 will leave a scratch k-600 but will cut at the speed of say a p320 so it cuts down on the time it takes you'll need it in the middle so we'll start with the k600 first and go ahead and put it on our hand pad now before we start sanding I know a common question I'm going to have is can I put a new clear coat on it if my clear coat is discolored and although you can do it, it doesn't show It's going to be okay just because we're not sanding it well and we're putting a clear coat on a very bumpy surface and it's going to peel off because there's no chemical bonding between the two and no physical bonding so the best thing to do is smooth the transition between the two uh the clear coat and the base coat and the line where it starts to fade and no fancy tools like we said all we're going to do is sand down that line and you can see how much it's building up how easy that is right there it's making it smooth and from here we'll be good to go now the reason i like this is 600 grit so we don't have to worry about sand scratches so hard we have to recover from and look does the job is exactly what we need and also what you want the focus is not just the right edge, but if we take it a bit further down the panel, we'll see that we start to get a deterioration further down, so So make sure you touch all of those areas too and you'll know based on looking at it it looks smooth feels smooth and a little effort and it will smooth out right away no need to use water when sanding because this paper is designed to be used dry, that's one of the cool things about it and the reason why i'd rather use it now if you want to make sure you have a very even scratch there's a block you can use and we're going to use it on a quarter panel and it will put the same pressure as it would otherwise that we're not pushing and creating little ripples or dents and every once in a while the paper will go ahead and clog so get a brush just brush it off and you're good and your hands are your best friend just feel If you feel a little rough, keep giving it some grit. i want to fade it out what it means is we're smoothing out the coats ok we're smoothing out the transition between the two so when we prime we have a nice surface to go on and we can sand it down nice and smooth for our base coat now as a good intermediate cleaner I always recommend Trayway glass cleaner it's unscented it doesn't have any added odors that could leave a film on the finish that will give us a sort of fish eye look relatively cheap I prefer to use a microfiber towel as they do get messy they just the strips in the wash with a little bit of degreaser and it comes right off it's a good way to get all the contaminants off or lets say dusting the surface works so much better than a paper towel and after it's clean I can feel once again I can feel a little rough right here so once again I'll take my hand pad and just go over that surface over here a little bit wait, you can still see a bit of flaking then just re-lather, give it another wipe, and rein To see if it's completely smooth, we go ahead and mask it all off to make sure we don't overspray the exterior panels we don't want to prime.

Now the rest of all the panels are sanded down to 600. sand we've got a few areas where we did some body work on a door and on the quarter panel now the primer we're going to use is a 1k surface primer from scratch paint, So the paint products that we're going to Paintscratch.com brings to you today and it's a better alternative than just going to your store and picking it up. It knows your color duplicate and it will explain why they are better when it comes to basecoats and color blending technology and all that great stuff now this is a 1k product which means you don't have to worry about it dry out in the can a few days later so we went ahead and used a 600 grit grit scratch around our k600 now it just calls for say a p320 but i know how rattle cam primers work to shrink and i dont want that does shrink to a 320 grit scratch, so in my experience I went up a bit.

I think that's for the best and I'll give it a final clean before I go ahead and prep it. can never be too clean now we don't need the primer everywhere we just need the primer in the areas where we have body work and the areas where we sand it down where our good paint is actually in quotes right? We don't need to put primer on that view, we are using the primer as a filler to fill in any little sand scratches or porosity in the putty to give us a surface that we can sand down and get it ready for painting so make sure you shake this for a few minutes and then we are ready to apply on those problem areas.

We're going to give it about two or three light coats, so let's make sure to prime not only where the seam between the transition was, but also prime where the base was. the layer was exposed and we didn't go overboard with the first layer. er on and we're going to let it dry dry is a term we use to allow it to dry between coats let it dry for a good 10 minutes now I've shown you two coats but I actually did a third and this is after three layers and it looks really really good no reactions still looks nice and smooth let's let it really dry give it a good hour to cure before we start sanding it so it's almost dry an hour later and you brian might be wondering how come i can't use a rattle primer in everything i do and how come you don't use it in the store well back in the store we need to be able to have a primer that is a little thicker to be sprayed with a paint gun now the thickest primer is a 2k primer which means it has a hardener and it has a primer on its own now when they mix together this is how it cures this primer right out of the can is a 1k and well, naturally I know ca just from the movement of air going through it now this particular primer will not have the build up that a 2k primer has but for this particular project it is a perfect material to use now at this point we are ready to sand our primer now you can use any black paint or you can use a guide coat as a guide the coat won't clog the sandpaper as much and what a guide coat does is it shows you where you sand stitch you don't need to get full coverage it should look like this when you've finished the dot is all the little black specks go into the grit from all the primer and it will show you where to stop and where you have already sanded it goes something like this we are rigged with our k800 on our block and we are going to go ahead and sand now we can see the areas that have already been sanded because we still have our black guide coat here and we have primer clean here now we'll continue this throughout the whole l way considering I'll still have to go ahead and brush off that sandpaper as we're from Using a higher grit it might clog a little easier than that k600 and then of course we can go back to our hand pad if we need any of those tighter areas that we might need to get into now which I like to do. once it's all sanded down I like to take it out and give everything a good scrub with a prep and clean and a gray scratch pad that way we can make sure all the residue is clean it will give us a better chance of a refinish job. paint much cleaner and after it has been taped it should look something like this. put some paint on it we're not too concerned about taking those two items off especially since they're the same color and speaking of color matching this is our color right here from paintscratch.com b92p this is the exact same paint that you would get from a paint gun but it gets put in a spray can and that's why I'm really excited to have two materials that are compatible with each other so they don't wrinkle along the way.
