What is the best way to lay down the clear coat over my finish coat on the fender I just painted but ruined when I shot the clear coat?


Refer to the paint manufacturer's data sheet to ensure the new gun has the right setup for clearcoat.

Could be the new gun was supplied setup for spraying a high solids primer or something that needs something like a 0.7 mm fluid tip. Clearcoat would need a 0.4 mm tip, an appropriate needle and a different air cap.

Data sheets are very valuable things. Don't forget to pick one up when you buy spray paint. A viscosity cup is another useful addition to the tool kit along with a graduated paint stirring stick.

When aplying fresh paint with roller paint is peeling back of with roller


what is the substrate? (plaster, drywall, painted surface.... etc.)
if the surface is painted: can you tell the generic type of paint used before? and what is the condition of the existing paint, is it chalky? did you try to sand it?
if so, you might need to sand it and remove all flaking and chalking paint prior to application of a new coat. you might also need a compatible primer for best results.

Change color


You can paint it. Be sure to use a "kids room paint" since it will be less toxic. Use a good brush, not a roller for a smooth finish.
It looks like the finish is flat (not glossy), if so, you can paint right over i. If the finish is glossy sand it down just a but (to get the gloss off), especially in the areas that get a lot of use (like the top rails). Clean off the dust well (wipe down with mineral spirits for best results). and paint. Any general purpose paint will do well.

I have the hds780rs0605 I need to know if I can use latex paint for my walls and how to with out it clogging up


Let me start by saying these types of paint sprayers are not usually recommended for painting large things like room walls because you're going to spend a lot of time refilling the paint cup. The cup only holds 20 ounces of paint and that won't go very far on your walls. If all your paint isn't mixed and properly thinned at the same time your walls could end up with a checker board look. You would usually be way further ahead to rent an airless paint sprayer.
If you have to use it; first run your paint through a paint strainer, avaliable at any paint or box store (The Home Deopt, Lowes, etc). Even new paint has impurities that will clog paint guns. It's highly recommended you mix in a paint conditioner like Flotrol but not absolutely necessary. Next, you're going to have to experiment with the consistency of the paint to get a good even flow out of the gun. The thinner you have to make the paint to get a good flow, the lighter and more coats you're going to have to apply. It's also recommended to run a paint soaked roller over the wall right after you spray it to even out the paint and remove any overlap marks.

I own this 0525151 and am trying to spray a latex fence stain. worked for a little while, then nothing. I tried thinning the paint with water and a paint thinner product recommended by the Home Depot...


We used paint sprayers every day for years.

Tips come in different sizes. With oil base paints we used the small tip like a 4-11. With latex we used bigger tips, like a 5-17. Really big spray rigs use 5-19. Tip size matters.

Another important thing is to strain the paint. The paint store sells 5-gallon-size strainers. Put the strainer over a 5-gallon bucket. Pour the paint into the bucket. Lift the strainer up, and finally grab it with your hands and squeeze the paint out. Do this in the grass and then wash out the strainer for next time. Put a lid over the paint bucket so the paint stays wet and clean.

We used high pressure sprayers, and then wrapped a filter right over the intake... but the tips would still clog. We had guns with reversible tips ... rotate the tip around, fire the gun, and the clog was gone.

Maybe your tip is getting clogged real fast. When that happens, the gun simply doesn't shoot. The old guns, we had to take them apart every time the tip clogged. I don't know about the tip on your gun.

Your paint sprayer is probably not very high pressure, which means it would clog easily if stuff was in the paint ... and latex is thick and sticky and it gets crusty as it dries.

Suggestion: I would ask Sherwin Williams about the tip. See if they sell parts or tips at the Home Depot or Sherwin Williams.

Also you can clean the gun out with lacquer thinner. See if the lacquer thinner will pass through the gun. I would take it apart and clean everything with a toothbrush, and soak it in lacquer thinner. It might work, but the home-depot-home-owner-spray-equipment is generally not made for more than a few jobs. Especially the wagner-diaphragm-type guns.

Something else you might consider for a cedar-type picket fence. A roller. Sherwin Williams sells thick shaggy roller covers that hold a lot of paint. The little cheap roller covers can't paint a fence or anything else because they're too thin. We almost never sprayed a fence. We'd put masonite along the bottom and then just threw paint up with a roller [slap it on as the customers used to claim] >>> for cedar pickets, thin the paint with water (1 gallon water per 5 of paint) so it flows into the holes and gaps. Roll the fence, and then go back and touch up with a brush or the sprayer. A paint job on a fence always looks better the next day [unlike some things] so sometimes it's best to wait 1 day before doing the brush work.

I have old tappan chest freezer. Have not used in three years. Cleaned out the mold and dirt however, paint is bubbling and has a few rust places. Can I paint the inside and if so what type would I use...


you might want to plug it in first and see if it still cools. If it has rust, you might have a compromised sealed system, in which case you have no refrigerant. Furthermore, Im not sure painting the inside would be a good idea, as the inside my always smell like paint, and therefore so would your food.

I have some chips on a Findlay cookstoves enamel.It is old and the enamel is light green.Any ideas where I may find something to touch it up?


There are several brand of touch-up enamel paint for appliances. Krylon for example, it's carried by a wide variety of retailers such as Home Depot, K-Mart, Sears and Walmart.

You can also get it at store that specialize in paint like Sherwin Williams. They might also be able to give you the best match to your color. If not you can try appliance stores. They may be able to give you a good match. The only other option is to match it yourself. The best way to to that is to get some color card examples from a paint store or hardware like Home Depot and find the best match. Now get a list of the colors that they use to mix it. Ask if you can get a very small amount of the colors used in the mix and using trial and error mix it yourself.

You can also try mixing it to get your color using enamel auto touch-up paint.

There really is no source for old appliance touch-up paint so it will never be perfect but with a little trial and error you can get pretty close.
Hope this helps you out.







Prep before painting:
  • Sand the damaged area lightly with fine-grit sandpaper. Roughen the area to be painted and remove any rust, but avoid sanding the surrounding surface.

  • Clean the area thoroughly with a rag dampened with paint thinner. Let dry.
  • Paint over scratches with appliance touch-up paint, using the bottle's applicator brush or another fine-tip paintbrush. Let dry overnight.
There will be issues with areas that are exposed to high heat so be prepared to repeat when necessary.

Rust on outside of freezer door -- is there an epoxy or white coating to cover over the rust?


You can clean off using a green scrubbing bad and some brasso all at wall mart then buy a can of spraypanit and spray it with food grade paint by Krylon paints also at wal mart. The paint will seal it and keep it from comming off.

Peeling paint


The only real danger is if it continues, it can deteriorate the metal, allowing sparking and possible leakage.

It's a good idea to clean, sand, clean again and repaint the area.

High temperature appliance paint is available form stores like Lowe's and Wal-Mart.
