No Primer. Just sand with 400 grit to start and then a good wipe down with mineral spirits then a good wash, followed by a thorough wipe with denatured alcohol. Thats it. Let it dry and then start your first coat, let it dry, apply another coat, let dry and start the sanding with 600 then repeat. Move up to 800, then 1,000, 1,200 finishing after the 8th coat of paint with 1,600-2,000.... one more question..on the primer.. did it go on full strenght? or did you thin it out..if so by how much? thanks
Ugh. Murphy strikes again. I think the odds of you getting any compensation for all that manual effort are probably pretty slim - at least I can show the invoice from the body shop to help with valuation.Well, up to a point. This is what happened to me today: not sure whats going to happen with their insurance adjuster and how I will repaint it. Probably the same way.
Those auto paints are generally Acrylic. They dry fast (very fast) and don't produce a high gloss out of the gun. Using a slow drying enamel house paint allows the paint to flow while wet imparting a better finish off a brush or roller.up-date.. you know kragens auto part sells auto paint( house of kolor )( the type you use in a spray gun) if you thin this out and use a hardener, why would this not work , with a foam roller?
