Modifying a Car
- Make sure that you have all your tools on hand. This includes sandpaper, electric sandpaper, masking tape, newspapers, air compressors, and spray guns. Also consider weather conditions such as sunshine, wind, and rain.
- Make sure that you have the correct chemicals for the paint such as thinners, primer, undercoat, and top coat. All these are necessary to prolong the life of the paint job.
- Remove all the dust in your work area to prevent particles from landing on the wet paint. Particles will destroy the smooth finish. You also need to clean the car to remove all grease and road contaminants.
- Never forget to wear a face mask, goggles and gloves to avoid getting the chemicals on your skin. These items will also protect you from the particles that come off when you sand current enamel off the Used Cars.
- Sand the car in circular motions for a uniform surface. The more uniform the better the end result. Once you have finished with sanding the chassis, apply thinners onto a cloth and wipe the surface. Thinners will get the remaining paint off.
- Priming the surface provides a good base coat to prolong the life of the paint job. It also helps to set the chemicals for an even finish. If you don’t want a specific section of the car to be painted, cover those areas with masking tape or newspaper.
- Apply thin layers of primer and paint so that clumps and drops don’t form. Thinner coats will set quicker and allow you to add another coat on top without unsightly formations.
- Follow all the rations mentioned in the instructions of the paint packages. There might be a different amount of chemicals that need to be mixed with the right amount of thinners.
