Bulls Eye should be oil or shellac based
& may not be compatible to cover with latex

Read the bulls eye label

I would shellac any knots,then prime with oil
based primer twice, in different directions,
then you can cover with either

SOURCE: best solution for paint oxidation ?

I'm guessing your car is red - red car paint is the worst for oxidation. I'm afraid T-Cut & elbow grease is the best solution but the coloured car wax is usually fine. Hope this helps.

How do I repair the bubbles on the exterior of my 1992 georgie boy cruise air 111


paint , if that is what has bubbled, needs to be taken back to metal with sandpape. Only the affected areas should be rubbed down to the metal. When this is fone rust inhibitor should be painted onto th affacted areas. some axide paint should be appled as an undercoat, exide primer that is, two or three coats . .If there are any pits use some filler and rub this down prior to spplying the primer.. The primer should be slightly below the surrounding paint before the application of top coat. the treated are should be wiped down with isopropyl to remove dust etc. then the top coat should be applied and allowed to dry for a week befor being touched

How to spot paint repair your car, etc!


Easy job for anyone in 9 simple steps!
1st) You will want to have a few simple tools.(Sanding paper, Auto Paint, Clear Gloss, A paint gun or airbrush, primer, masking tape and/or masking paper,car wax.)

**** [Note: the directions for each of these tools and/or products are clearly marked when you buy them & ech one's uses is different, so please follow directions for each!]

2nd) You will separate that spot from the rest of your car by masking off that area.

3rd) You will sand that area down to the metal.

4th) You will take your sand paper (Medium grit) and scuff up the area.

5th) You will clean all dust from that area by blowing it off and/or washing it off (Simple soap and water will do), then dry it completely.

6th) You will spray primer the area to be fixed. (one or 2 coats will do.) then let it dry.

7th) You will scuff the area up with sandpaper again (medium grit) then lay your basecoat paint down on it (3 to 4 coats) and let it dry between each coat.
8th) You will scuff the area up again with the medium grit sandpaper and you will spray clear gloss over it (3 to 4 coats) and let it dry.

9th) You will wash clean againthe area and buff to more of a showroom glow!!!

Now you are done!
You can apply these basic methods to most any paint jobs, for they are the basic way an pro auto painter does a good paint job....
Thank you for your time!
Have fun!

Is there too much moisture in the air to paint Dunn Edwards outside exterior paint


Hi Sheri

I trust you are well.

I would suggest you paint on a bright sunny day when the walls you want to paint are properly dry, any paint will not take well on damo walls.

Hope this helps

kind regards

Same problem with grill bubbling what to do 2004 niss murano


I've decided to "black" mine out with a high gloss black. First I'm going to take the grill off & see if I can use airplane paint remover on a small area to remove the coating that is bubbling.

If so, then i'll primer the surface & repaint it as is since it should be smooth after the remover works and I scrape it down and wash it clean.

You could then leave it once the clearcoat is removed, re-coat it with clearcoat, or paint it any color, even to match. Automotive spray paint is available at auto-parts stores for this type of material, just get the right can of spray paint.

If I find the paint remover won't work without hurting the actual grill, I'll use some fine grit sandpaper and prep the surface, then primer it and paint it high gloss black. Color choice is optional of course!


Maybe this will help.

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.

My daughter want to change her Scion alloy mag


That's definitely possible.

She'll need to thoroughly wash the wheel.
Then she'll need to sand the wheel down using 120 to 320 grit sandpaper in order to remove the gloss from the current finish and prepare it for primer. If your wheels are chrome, you need to get below the glossy surface to the dull finish below. Use 600 grit sandpaper to smooth out the the rim.
Then use a rag to remove the remaining dust.

If the tire is still on the wheel, tape and cover up the tire.

Lay the rim down on a flat surface in a well ventilated area and spray 2 to 3 coats of primer

Once it dries, gently sand it again with 600 grit sandpaper to to smooth it out again. use a rag to remove the excess dust.

Then spray 2 to 3 coats of the paint that she wants. and let dry.
Sand again to remove any runs in the paint.

Then spray 2 to 3 coats of clear coat. sand with 1000 to 1500 to remove any burrs. Then use a polishing agent to bring the shine back

Water leak in travel lite truck camper has caused over cab bed area plywood to decay. Need diagram or schematic to determine best method of repair.


Hi brad, I had the same problem with a camper. I do not know of any available schematic, but would recommend dis-assembly of ceiling area to fix. It's not any easy job, but the only way to fix it properly. Remove all water damage section, make sure water is not pooling on the exterior roof. If it is collecting on the roof, you must brace it from underneath to raise any 'dips' so it sheds water, and make sure you apply a sealing coat (available at trailer stores, or on line) on the exterior. Also, if you park the camper when not in use, make sure you tilt it to help shed water more quickly. You have to use your carpenter and auto body skills to fix this. Don't put it off, I did and the roof deteriorates very quickly once you notice you have a problem. To remove plywood that is damaged, use a skill saw set at the minimum depth (thickness of the plywood) so you don't cut thru anything else. Use a drill to determine the thickness. To install new plywood, cut to fit the opening(s). Next get 3" wide by 3/4" thickness boards, place above cut out area, half on existing ceiling, half hanging over cut out, screw in thru existing ceiling into boards, attach replacement piece, screw into overhanging boards. You can putty over the joints, sand sand and paint, or just glue some sort of fabric to cover the area and make it look finished. Good luck!

I have a 1993 buick lesabre custom that has flaking paint on the roof and trunk lid. Im not a body or paint man but I have started to sand down the areas with 400 grit and have applied some coats of...


Initial sanding can be done with 100 or it will take you a year to sand it down. You can either use a power sprayer and have paint mixed to match, or use cans made by duplicolor ...You will never match the existing paint though because it changes with age...I use the larger cans when available (marked for "vans") You can use 400 wet paper between coats and if you want to get crazy, use 800 wet when finished. Wait a few weeks and use white compound, clean well, in another couple of weeks, use clear-coat, sand again and when fully cured (few more weeks) then wax. Never sand unless paint has dried for at least 24 hours...even when it looks and feels dry, it can roll, and damage everything you have done.
