Let’s proceed with the auto body questions! 

Question: What is the best way to remove overspray?

There are different ways to remove overspray. One way is using a razor blade and soap to take out overspray on windows and glass. You can also use a clay bar with soap and water to take out overspray on body panels. 

On the other hand, the best way to remove primer overspray on moldings such as plastic black trims on the doors is by the use of lacquer thinner. You can then use black rubber treatment to recondition these black trimmings.

I have a whole section in the LearnAutoBodyAndPaint VIP Program that tackles the strategies to remove overspray. 

Question: How are checkerboard patterns painted? Do you use a stencil or actually tape the pattern and paint?

You can use a stencil to do it. You can also use something like a rubber grip pad in kitchen cabinets that looks like a checkerboard, then lay that on pieces and spray base over it to give a carbon fibre effect.

Question: Do you have to use primer sealer before paint? 

No, you don’t. I highly recommend that you check out the LearnAutoBodyAndPaint VIP Program as I have several projects that tackle your question such as the BMW Project and the Green Mazda Miata Project. I didn’t have to prime the entire thing except for the areas that I did bodywork on.

You can paint over sanded clear coat if it’s in good shape. If you have a lot of peeling and fading, you’ll need to seal those areas.

Question: Do all the Atom Spray Guns come in multiple tips? 

I don’t think so. The Atom X88 Infinity Spray Gun is the only Atom model that comes with the dual tip.

It is not a recommended primer gun which is why it does not have a 1.8 or 2.0 tip, but it comes with the basic tip kits which are the 1.3 and the 1.4 tips. These tip sizes are good for base coat clear coat and single-stage enamels. 

The Atom X88 Infinity Spray Gun is on pre-order sale on Zoolaa. Reserve yours now.
