Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Can you paint wood with the same process that an automobile goes through? IE: Spraying and Baking?

I guess the real question is will it stand up to the heat when the baking process begins. Looking to powder coat, or paint like an automobile. I know the powder coating sticks to metal, but you never know the things they do these days.

Hi,i recently used a DUPLI-COLOR CLEARCOAT TOUCH UP PAINT on 2 small areas where the clearcoat had peeled off when i replaced an emblem on my 1995 Deville.It is a bit noticeable when light shines at a certain angle--but more importantly, IT STOPS THE CLEARCOAT FROM PEELING OFF ANYMORE.

SOURCE: clearcoat

sanding really dont matter .. I usually sand only one direction and watch what your doing to the surface of the clear coat .. you can actually watch the orange peel disappear..use a damp rag once in a while to wipe the area your sanding so you can see your surface to make sure your getting it perfect .. this is the way to get a super job. if you use a rag to wipe the surface this also helps you see if your getting enough off or not .. use 2000 grit when doing this it makes it easier to buff off when your all done.. then go to your polishing compound not rubbing compound . hope this helps and good luck .. I love clear coating its really nice if you take your time sanding it and getting the surface perfect and with no imperfections... holler if you need more.. Jerry

SOURCE: I have a 1993 buick lesabre custom that has flaking paint

if you have sanded the areas with 400 grit sandpaper already, the next thing you want to do is move up to a higher grit paper like 800 and them 1000 and smooth out the area. After that, wet sand the area until it is smooth and feathered. Wipe the area down with a dry cloth. Luckily, the primer just smoothed out, but if not, apply a thin coat and allow to dry. Last, apply the basecoat, let it sit 24 hours, wet sand it, clean the area, and then clear it.

SOURCE: Peeling clear coat on black 1999 toyota corolla.

Well it is a common problem with Toyota paint jobs. Unfortunatly a simple wax wont stop this from continuing all though it will hide it from site for a while. The problem has to do with the factory paint job, so a repaint (by Maco or any other botom dollar body shop) will only be a band-aid fix, and will most likely rear it's ugly head somewhere down the line. If you intend to sell the car this may be a way to make it look sharp and easier to sell. **** if you intend to keep it I would not sugest it as you will most definatly be dissapointed as a repaint is only a temporary fix for this issue.

To thoroughly fix this issue you would need to have the car professionally stripped (at least down to the collor coat) and repainted. This will be expensive, and most likely will cost more than it is worth for a car that old. I would start by checking to see if there was a factory recall on the paint for that year, make, and model.

Good Luck!

What is an inexpensive way to paint my roof at home on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 and still look somewhat good

Mask everything off and on a windless day use some spray paints to do the deed. Also have a ladder or step stool so you can reach all areas properly and maintain the same distance from sprayer to roof at all times.

Always keep the can moving when you are spraying so that you do not put the paint on unevenly. Or like one of my friends did, got some real good quality paint and an expensive roller and ........
Came out real good. Could swear that paint was baked on.

Finished paint on solid-wood doors

sand smooth and spray on everything. Use a low pressure spray unit. Anything else will leave marks . Remember the finish is only as good as the start so brush in a primer and then sand out brush marks then spray the undercoat and finish coats

I have a 95 nissan pickup 2wd 4cy and it is making a clicking sound before it starts. i recently replaced the starter alternator and battery. I'm guess it may be a wiring problem but would like some...

I would take a real close look at the battery cables. Make sure the battery posts are real clean and the cable clamps. You can use a paste made of baking soda and water to clean any corrosion, and then a fine sandpaper ( like 180 grit) to clean the posts and cable ends. then check all lyour connections, make sure they are clean and secure.

2003 Buick Century won"t start--can hear the clicking under the engine.

If you can hear clicking under the hood, my guess is corroded battery terminals. Use water and some baking soda. Pour on terminals AFTER you disconnect them. Don't spill on your paint and rinse well. Next check the cables for wear and for a corroded ground wire to the frame. Check the cables at the starter. Then make sure your battery has 12V DC. If all good, look toward starter solenoid or starter itself.

If your geting a new on. Take a grinder with a cutoff disk. Or a dremel tool, Hacksaw whatever you got and cut the bearing on both sides almost to the driveshaft. Then take a hammer and chisel and pop it real good. And call it a dirty ***********. And it fall off. Or you can just stand the driveshaft on a block of wood and tap the bearing around and around straight down. Maybee heat it up with a tourch and hit it some more. but it will go.

Trunk latch is switched to locked and won't open on a 95 chrysler

If you are talking about where the key goes, try inserting a small pin or paper clip(straightened) to hold open the little door where the key goes while spraying a bit of WD40 or CRC-56 into the lock. It won't hurt the paint. After spraying, insert the key in and out a number of times. Spray again, this time with the key inserted. Move the key up and down while sliding in and out. This should free up any stuck tumblers. If she still wont open, repeat the process. Still no luck? May need a new tumbler.

I want to know how to camouflage a jeep the best

Knowing how to paint a Jeep in camo patterns means you can hide your Jeep in the woods, marshy areas or in open fields without it being easily seen. Using Mossy Oak's Shadow Grass pattern, paint your Jeep with natural-looking shadows and grass blades. The 3-D look of this pattern allows you to easily hide your Jeep from water fowl, doves, deer and big game.

Things You'll Need:
  • Sandpaper (120 and 800 grit)
  • Wax and grease remover
  • Lint-free towel
  • Camo stencil
  • Masking tape
  • Masking paper
  • Respirator mask
  • Automotive primer
  • Automotive paint (black, gray, light tan and brown)
  • Automotive clear coat
  1. Sand the surface of the Jeep with 120-grit sandpaper until the surface is dull. You can use a dual-action sander for this step to speed the process. This removes the top clear coat and prepares the surface for primer. Primer won't stick to a shiny surface.
  2. Mask off areas of the Jeep that won't be painted, such as the windows, tires and passenger area of the Jeep. Wipe the surface with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
  3. Spray primer on the Jeep in three thin coats. Allow each coat to dry completely. Once the primer is dry, use 800-grit sandpaper to sand the top layer of primer until smooth. This leaves a smooth surface for the paint. Wipe again with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
  4. Paint a thin base coat of gray on the Jeep. Cover all of the primered areas on the Jeep so that no primer can be seen. Allow the paint to dry.
  5. Go over the Jeep with brown paint, spraying small areas of brown paint in no particular pattern. The finished effect should look like the Jeep is equally painted gray and tan. Hold the first stencil against the Jeep and use black paint to fill it in. Move the stencil over and paint again. Start at the front of the Jeep and work towards the rear.
  6. Move on to the next stencil and use light tan paint to spray the grass pattern. The grass should start at the bottom of the Jeep and reach up towards the top. For longer grass, don't spray the tops of the grass but instead move the pattern up, spray the stems longer and then spray the tops, making the grass stems long. Repeat this around the Jeep and across the hood. Go back over the grass stems with black paint, lightly spraying a few of the stems to give them a shadow look.
  7. Finish by spraying three coats of clear coat paint onto the painted areas of the Jeep. This protects the paint from UV rays and keep the camo pattern looking good.

Tips & Warnings
  • Paint is best applied using a paint spray gun and air compressor, but canned spray paint will work.
  • Never sand or spray primer or paint without using a painter's respirator mask.

Rust on the roof

Well, I guess u want to know how to fix it? Sand down the roof, if rust is bad, use a rough sandpaper to start, work your way down to fine, or better yet , extra fine. Clean off all dust, spray w/ primer, let dry (time needed , check can), spray light coats of paint, allowing each to dry before spraying the next. Too heavy a coating will make the paint run and look like cr_ap, so be patient and do several light coats for best results. Make sure u do it in a clean area (dust, bugs, dirt, rain, dew, will mess up the quality of the job, so do it when it's dry, not dusty, and make sure conditions remain that way til it dries. Good luck!
