Preparing the car
The exterior surface of the car needs to be washed thoroughly with mild soap and water and drying it completely. It is a necessity to remove the fixtures from the interiors. The well-ventilated and well-lit garage is a must-have, along with an open space where access to light and air is easier.
Sanding the car
The car’s surface should be scrubbed completely with larger sandpaper removing the old paint. It can be a back-breaking thing, but once the paint starts to peel off, it becomes easier. You then have to use fine sandpaper to remove the signs of corrosion as well as the scratches. Any gaps that are minor should be filled with the putty and dried off before the paint leaves the complete exterior smoothened out.
Masking off and taping
The use of masking tape or the pre-taped film can prevent over-spraying, which is important. It is for this reason that the outline tape becomes invisible. Covering the complete car with plastic sheets would be a good option in case painting is done within the garage.
To fill the scratches, the primer spray painting is quite good and needs to be sprayed over the clean, dry, and sanded exteriors. Between the coats, one or more coats can be applied at a gap of 10-15 minutes.
Spray painting – first coat
Make use of the spray paint gun and position yourself about 10 inches to a foot away from the surface of the car after you cover the frames, windows, wheel rims with newspaper and tape. The coat can spread evenly to build up a smooth and nice surface when you are spraying at an even and regular surface. The paint now has to be left for drying out completely.
Adding a second coat
The second layer of paint should be applied to the car for a fresh new look as recommended by the professional. It depends completely on you allowing the first coat to dry out completely before the application of the second coat of paint. A shiny and smooth feel can be offered to your car with a quick run-through with car wax.
