The clear coat DOES need the activator mixed in when applying the paint. If not used it will not dry properly and will destroy the basecoat

Most of it depends on the paint you are using

ALWAYS seek the professional opinion of the paint supplier

In other words, get your paint at a real paint shop and NOT an auto parts store

A real paint store will have all the material data sheets and paint manufactures recommendations

There are just too many different combination to give a general rule anymore...its science!!!!

Why 2002 Chrysler voyagers have body paint oxidation & when did the paint oxidation start and how can I be reimbursed for the repairs?


this has been a problem since the 80`s and it was caused by the top sealing clear coat not being mixed properly or the wrong/inferior clear coat was being used and not enough applied when the car was being painted. manufactures felt any where they could save a penny was more in their pocket. it affected some cars and not others for some reason and no they do not feel responsible for the problem.

I have a deep scratch in one of my doors on my Buick. I bought the touch up paint but I'm not exactly sure how to apply it. I have used touch up paint many other times with many cars and it always seemed...


if you are using a mere touch up kit ..i would recommend for about 15-30 cents buying a model paint brush the bristles are much smaller than what comes in the bottle and no you wont need to sand it at all after application it will look very dull but put it on and allow it to simply apply to the scratch only ....unless you know someone in the paint dept...and ask for a bit of clear to mix into the paint it will look dull upon finish

if you are good at airbrush i would suggest merely filling the scratch in just as i described earlier ...unless you are going to actually paint the entire area then your talking blending into either the adjacent areas or merely blending into the area around the scratch ...what ever way you look at it touch up paint will always look dull upon finish

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.

I hate to say, being 2008 and have that many miles, from my experienced working many years at many dealership, your fighting against a brick wall, you can threat them with all kind of law suit, all it will come down to is repaint and that is the best they will do. I hate to say that they going to make you run around in a circle by the time they have exhausted you, you will settle just for a paint job. Those machine from factory, I wish I can say its an excellent job it does but you going to get some defect. In you case if you take it a good paint shop and highly recommended, than you will get allot better paint job than a factory and you shouldn't even have a problems with it and the new paint job will probably outlast other parts compair factory paint on your car. good luck..and I hope that help some

How do i go about painting my wife's rav4 tire cover. What kind of paints do i use... eq metallic than a clear coat?


You need flexible primer and paint, base-coat and clear coat. The kind that body shops apply apply to bumpers. Go to your paint store and tell them you are doing plastic. They will sell you what you need. If you use regular paint, it will crack. You really should use the flexible paints.
