The rubber molding probably still has a coating of mold release on it form when made. Try some plain alcohol to remove it, or some dish soap and water. It may be a silicon based mold release agent which is very stubborn to remove.

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....

Paint problems


You have 2 options:

1. Get a quote from a paint shop, or maybe a local "backyard" spraypainter who could probably do it cheaper. Check your phonebook for spraypainters in your area.
2. Respray the roof and trunk yourself using color-match spray cans from your local auto warehouse. You will to use masking tape and newspaper to cover the windows, windscreen, trims etc that you DON'T want painted.

What soluntion is v best for my 2000 jeep grand cherokee lorado...i'm having problems with the low door panels as far dicoloring


a great fix for this problem is to take the Jeep to a ' Good ' auto paint shop and have them prep and paint the panels with a good quality anti-fade paint. make sure the paint shop warranties their work against chips and flaking. make sure they are going to use a good quality paint and primer.
this should only cost about 150.00 to 200.00 dollars at a good paint shop, with a turn around time of about 1 1/2 days.
now if you want to avoid that cost -- you can go down to your local auto parts store and buy a spray paint that works on plastics--- you will need to prep,primer and spray the panels following the instructions on the can -- the spray paint that they make these days come in many shades and hold up very well to the weather and sun,,just mask off the Jeep very well so you don't get over spray on the rest of the vehicle. make sure you keep one of the empty spray cans or a half full can around for future color match application. the cost of the spray paint can vary on quality and maker, usually around 8.00 to 16.00 dollars per can,, and primer and other supplies should run you around 30.00 more dollars. call around and shop around and ask lots of questions --- stop buy your local auto paint shop and ask them for a free estimate,, you might find a place that will do it even cheaper then I had quoted above (?).
good luck,

Need to remove windshield 1987 gmc jimmy ( full size) for rust repair


They are glued in with Urethane adhesive sealant and must be cut out. There are special tools for cutting it. You can use an "L" shaped knife with a cable to pull it or something like a piano wire to saw through it. You will need some help from a good friend. Be sure to treat all the metal and glass that will be exposed to the urethane window weld with a special primer that is made for that purpose.

So here is the deal, I took out my entire dash board out of my truck with plans to re-paint it. So my question is how should I go about painting the plastic moulding and what not? Also I was curious as...


they make special paint for this, contact a local automotive paint store they can sell u the paint and the cleaners you need to use to prep the plastic, do no skip any step, what follows is a detailed description of what this cleaning entails.
Use a clean rag and the soapy water to wash the rest of the dashboard. You'll need to scrub especially hard if the dashboard has Armor All™ or another type of protectant on it.

Next, rinse the dashboard off well, and dry it off with a clean rag. Before you paint the interior of your car, the areas will need to be completely dry in order for the paint to stick well to it. So, let the dashboard air dry while you apply painter's masking tape to the interior. Painter's masking tape is blue tape that peels off easily after the job is done. That's why it's recommended over regular masking tape. Painter's masking tape won't leave a sticky residue like regular tape can, too.

Tape off the areas of the dashboard you don't want to get paint on. This may include the bottom part of the windshield, the radio, gauges, the gear shift, other chrome, etc.

Before you paint hard plastic areas, you'll need to rough it up with a piece of fine sandpaper first. Use an old rag to wipe up the dust the sandpaper creates. Then, you'll need to remove the remainder of the dust with a wet, soapy rag. Rinse the area again and dry it well.

Finally, use a clean rag and some rubbing alcohol to go over the plastic pieces, and the dashboard (if it's made of plastic) one more time. The rubbing alcohol will remove any residue left from cleaning the area with the soapy water.

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 plastic molding around the entire car has faded so badly. I've tired all kinds of wax's but nothing seems to work. It's so gross looking. Anyone have any ideals on what to do?


the do make a "paint" for that. you wiill need to mask it off, and clean it real good so the paint will stick. the parts store should have what you need. If anything like wax or armor all is on it, you will need to strip it off, if you try to paint it with that on it, the paint wont stick. The store should have what you need.
