  • In this step, your car is ready to be applied by color. When spraying the paint make sure to use smooth even passes across what is being painted. Ensure that you do not start painting from the top of the part as the paint will fill the area, and make the area heavier.When painting you need to press and release the button to the side of the product being painted. This is because light coats are better than heavy coats.
  • Place the wet sand with 800 grit sandpaper after you are satisfied with the color and wipe it with micro fiber cloth.
  • Now, you can spray the clear coat the same way as the spray paint. Place only one or two light coats that are needed. Allow the clear coat plenty of time to dry as this is the layer that you will see most. You don’t want any prints stay on it.
  • After having enough time to dry the clear coat, you can do wet sand with the 800 grit, then the 1000 grit, then 1200 grit, then 1500, and finally the 2000 grit sandpaper. The use of wet sand will remove any heavier spots in the clear coat and will polish your painted product up very nicely.
  • The next step is removing the scratches caused by the 2000 grit. A rubbing compound will be needed to buff the surface because of the 2000 grit.
  • To give a nice glassy look you will need to buff the surface with a medium cut polish.
  • Always put a couple coats of wax to the surface, as coat of wax will be suitable both for exterior or interior part that you want to be painted. Coats of wax will protect the clear coat and add a nice smooth feel.
