Tony B. Richie is back with another auto body Q&A session! Today’s highlight is Cleaning A Spray Gun: Parts You Should NOT Remove.

Warning (primarily for all the newbie painters)!!!

Don’t take your gun apart… more than you should!

Watch the video as Tony shows you which parts should only be taken apart! πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†

Parts you can take off:

  1. Air Cap – Take it out and make sure that you clean it well after painting. You can use a lacquer thinner and a brush.
  2. Needle – For older spray guns, you can use a steel wool brillo to smoothen your needle out.
  3. Fluid Tip

Don’t take off your pressure setting and where your air inlet goes because these are factory-sealed and should not be taken out!!! ☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️

Let’s proceed with our Q&A:

Question: I got a friend that wants me to paint over his exterior chrome-plated trim. How would you tackle that? Remove the chrome or just paint over it?

You can scuff that chrome with 80-grit. Then, put a light coat of adhesion promoter and mix up some 2K filler primer. Lastly, you’ll need to sand it down with 400-grit and you’re good to go.

Question: Is wet sanding necessary before getting the car prep before base coat or can I dry-sand the car?

It is not necessary and you can finish it off with dry-sanding. That’s definitely your choice. You just need to make sure that you blow or dust it off before paint. On the other hand, I prefer wet sanding because it washes everything off. Plus, I feel that I get a cleaner cut at the finish.
