SOURCE: red paint for S registration

I've never been to London but the dealer should have touch up paint in your factory color. If the damaged areas are larger than 1/2 inch you might ask a body shop for an estimate. An auto detailer might offer a more elegant solution.

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 to make your car shine like new again.

Todays car uses a polyurehtane type finishes. Some would have that shiny clear coat on top of the flat color or mixed with color already. Over the years sun would dull away that shiny clear coating making the car look faded out and some sever cases the clear coat is already gone. On most cases an electric buffer and some polishing compound is all that is need to restore the car like new. On severe cases a fine sand paper of 1000 grit or more is needed to sand away the roughness then followed by buffing. If the clear coat is gone completely, you can spray only the bad area with fresh clear coat then buffed after wtih polishing compound after drying completely. Unless you have the knack for spray painting you should not try it. Getting a good result require skills and practice. Besides I do not really recommend spray cans since there are no adjustment you can do except in the way you spray the paint. If you decide to paint it anyways the rule of thumb is do not disturb any part that do not need to be painted and always cover surrounding area with a newspaper using masking tape. Do not rush on the job, and take your time. The technic in spray painting is get the hands moving before you press the spray button, and keep the hand moving as you release it. The distance from the surface should be 6 to 8 inches. Adjust travel speed to get the best result. Spray in layered patern. You should adjust the speed of travel just enough to cover the surface completely without mist but not to much since this will result in "orange peel" appearance or worst a run down and keep a steady pace.. Use a cardboard to practice first. Remember do not disturb any part that can be buffed out. Most faded out surface can be sanded and buffed smooth. If you take your time and do a good job you will be happy to see the fruits of your labor everytime you go outside and see your car. Good luck!

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!

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.

The bumpers on my 95 Honda del Sol are moderately oxidized. I've tried everything from armor all to testing a patch with compound. Nothing brings the original paint back for long. Is there a more permanent...

Repainting is definitely the best solution, but a laminar-flow spray booth is the only way to get a great-looking finish, and they're expensive enough that only pros buy them. :(
Failing that, have you tried spraying on a "clear coat" of enamel after using whatever compound does the best temporary job? Auto-parts stores usually carry clear coat in spray cans, and that can extend the life of whatever original paint you have left...

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!
