How To Paint a Car Part 5 Mini Course

Hey, what’s goin’ on!

This is Part 5 of the How To Paint A Car video series. As continuation of last week’s video, I’m showing you more of the body work that needs to be done on the Mazda Miata Project.

In this video, I show you the front bumper which can be tricky and takes some work. You’ll see how even it looks because we measured everything to be the right size. Check out the video to see how we did that.

After filling all the spots and dings, we have to go over all of them one more time and then slightly sand with 80-grit sand paper. Then sand it with 150-grit and finally something between 220-280 grit.

We’re using Nason 2K, it’s a hardener and a primer at the same time. We used one quart which should be enough for all the body spots. This one is thick and you would have to do a 4:1 mixture. It tells you everything you need to know in the can – it says 2-3 coats, 10-minute flash time and that you can wetsand it. After you lay paint on it, you could wetsand the body with 1500-grit sand paper.

So this video is just a quick clip to show you our game plan for this project. Sorry if you already know all the steps and I keep on repeating them. I just wanted to go over everything again on this project because I know most of you are beginners and this will help you remember it better.

If you’re looking to advance to PRO status and learn the step by step of auto body work and painting, check out the LearnAutoBodyAndPaint VIP Training Course.

I’m also giving you a FREE 85-Page Auto Body And Paint Manual. That alone is full of really useful information that I’m sure you’re really going to like.
