Hey, it’s Tony from LearnAutoBodyAndPaint. Welcome to today’s LearnAutoBodyAndPaint: Auto Body and Paint Q&A.

What’s up everyone! On today’s show I am giving away 2 free Master 17 Piece Professional Spray Gun Cleaning Kits to 2 VIPs! These cleaning kits are available on Zoolaa so go check them out.

Moving forward, we’re going to blast out an email 2-3 hours prior to the YT live and if you are subscribed to the channel, make sure that you turn on notifications for this channel.

Let’s go ahead and move on to our Q&A!

Question: I am going to paint my ‘63 Plymouth soon. Do you think 2k single stage in a solid red has a disadvantage compared to base coat clear coat?

What’s your end goal? Do you want to put a bad ass paint job on it where you can cut and buff a year or two years from now? You can do that with base coat clear coat to bring out the gloss. You can do it also do it with single-stage, but it’s easier with base coat clear coat. It’s more forgiving.

However, it’s more expensive to buy base coat clear coat than single-stage. Think financially first. If you want to go the cheaper route, go with single-stage but I recommend base coat clear coat if you want a better system.

Another good thing with base coat clear coat is it gives you more options to customize. You can add a little bit of pearl or flake or do candy and you can also cut and buff for maximum mirror finishes. I recommend the base coat clear coat and spend a couple more bucks for this type of system.

Question: I am painting my Harley Road Glide and using primer sealer. What do you think?

That’s fine. You can always finish off with 400-600 grit if you let it sit for a long time. And then, spray your base coat clear coat on it.

Another awesome update is we added a line of Tamco Paint Products on Zoolaa. These are great clear coats, 2K primers and Epoxies. Go check them out!

Question: I see the outline of the body filler after I outline it. What shall I do?

It seems you just need to put heavy coats of primer on it. I’m not sure exactly what you mean. It’s fine to see an outline but you just need to make sure to cover it with 2K primer, block it out and see how it looks then.

Question: Do I always need to finish body work with 280-grit?

If you can go from 280-grit to 320-grit. That would be fine. You need to make sure to spray your 2K Primer on it to fill all those scratches out. 280-grit to 320-grit is pretty coarse. It’s not fine enough to paint over.

You will need to put your 2K on it then block it out with 400-grit sandpaper. You can go to 600-grit but I stay at 400-grit. Then, you can do your base coat and clear coat on top of it.
