It’s Tony B. Richie in the house! Today is a beautiful day and I hope you’re enjoying your day as well. Today’s session highlight is How To Paint Your Car’s Interior.

Let’s start with updates before we move on to your auto body questions. I have some keynote presentations lined up. I recently released two keynote presentations wherein I received great feedback on. It seems that a lot of you liked the idea and I enjoyed doing it as well. 🤩

Atom X88 Infinity Spray Gun on Zoolaa

Another update is that the Atom X88 Infinity Spray Gun will be shipped by the first week of July. The spray gun is a double tip kit combo where you will get the 1.3 and 1.4 tip sizes as well as the GunBudd Ultra Lighting System.  

I don’t recommend this is a primer gun but Zoolaa will have an additional tip kit available for primer to be sold separately. However, I’d recommend this for base coat clear coat and the Atom X20 Spray Gun for primer or any cheaper spray gun brands like the Harbor Freight.

Right now, the Atom X88 Infinity Spray Gun is on pre order sale on Zoolaa. Go check it out and reserve yours now! 

Question: My spoiler on my GMC, which is all plastic, is fading, how do I go about it? 

I’m not sure how much fading your project has but you need to sand it down smooth. You need to feather it out with 400-grit wet sand. Then, lay a 2K filler primer over the entire thing and let it dry. Lastly, wash it down with 400-grit and then you’re ready for paint. 

Question: How do I repaint a ‘63 Chevy dash?

You need to do the same way as how you paint the outside of the car. You might need to use a smaller paint gun but it’s typically the same way as how you would paint the outside of a car. 

Continue watching and learn more about what I did to my ‘67 Chevelle Project! Here are a few videos I have released on this project:

Question: Do you recommend any decent higher volume compressor that I can get except for the 60-gal compressor?

It’s really going to be tough painting a complete car with a small air compressor since you need volume and a bigger horsepower motor to give you the volume that you need when painting a car. Check out an article I didn on Zoolaa about small air compressors here: Best Small 20 – 30 Gallon Air Compressors for Auto Painting Projects

You can also look into airless compressors. I haven’t had time to look into these products yet so I don’t have a lot of information to give you about them.

​Question: Do  you have to cut and buff clear coat on jambs/firewall and interior type stuff like dash?

Not really but you can just cut and buff when you have a run or just the highlights. I’ve never buffed out door jambs, though I had buffed out a run in a rail of a classic car. 

You don’t need to buff interiors since it’s very tough and you’ll need a micro buffer with a mini pad for it. They’ll end up glossy anyway, if you lay on a clear coat on those. Hence, you need to use a good clear coat so you won’t have a dieback which is common for cheap clears.

Question: How do I deal with runs, buffing out, etc. for old vehicles, machinery, farm equipment using single-stage enamel?

You can do your cutting and buffing just like your base coat clear coat. If you want to learn more, I’d strongly recommend that you secure your VIP slot as I have so much information in the LearnAutoBodyAndPaint VIP Program that you’ll benefit from when painting your own car project.
