Automotive refinish is another word for car painting.
Do you know those little sand paper things you get some of those a you remove the paint that way. That is the way I seen my uncle do it and it then you'll most likely have a grey base or a different color but that is the way you remove paint from your car.
Acrylic - pros: If properly cut and polished, appearance is unbeatable. Dries quickly on application,and so is less susceptible to dust. Acrylic paint is cheaper than Urathane. Easier to apply and less prone to runs. Can be done in a home garage. Over- spray on other cars is not a problem. A...
I would probably put a primer coat on first. A good primer is Kilz,which will also cover stains. It is worth the money to buy a goodbrand of primer since it will save you work and make your new paintlook its best.
NO. Powder coating is undertaken by stripping the metal back to a clean, grease free surface. The powder is than sprayed on to the metal and its then fired in a kiln. This melts the power to the metal surface. If there where paints on the surface and these are not powder coated on i.e. enamel paint...

Primer is almost always the exciting color of light gray, so if you're painting with a light color, you should stick with the gray. Primer could theoretically come in any color, but gray is what you'll nearly always see used. Sometimes a shop will use a darker primer such as red for certain darker...
There are many different types of paint.\n\nAlso, metal is a non-porous surface, mostly - you can increase its porosity (or absorption, ability to hold paint) by sanding or otherwise roughing up the surface so the paint "grabs" better and has less probability of cracking.\n\nTemperature and other...

Anything with an acid or solvent base could do it. It takes very little to etch the paint. To get to bare metal, something deliberate was used. Stripper of some kind. If there is no damage to the metal, most any paint stripper would do it. Some car finishes for several years will just come off on...
If the paint you are going to coat is completely dried / and cured, and are of the same "sheen" exp. semi-gloss, you should have no problem with the finished job.
The car that is moving is normally the one at fault. No matter how someone is positioned you should not drive into them (going forward or in reverse). It therefore seems to me that the car backing out of the driveway is at fault.
The quality of your finish, no matter how you paint it, is going to be a direct result of the work you put in. Make sure everything is sanded and clean. This is how I spray paint large object it takes a little practice but when done you cannot tell the difference. First repair anything that needs...

Gasoline or Transmission Fluid will clean the paint right OFF your car, that is, it will TAKE THE PAINT OFF.\n\nDo NOT use Gasoline, Transmission Fluid, Brake Fluid, or in fact, any sort of harsh solvent, as this will strip the paint, whether or not it's oxidized.\n\nI would recommend taking it to a...
Any form of alcohol, but I wouldn't really recommend any sort of liquor/drinkable alcohol - unless it's clear, like Vodka , or Everclear - and even then, you need some strong stuff.Isopropyl or Ethyl (for medical purposes, can be picked up on the cheap) works very well. There's also Denatured...
It beads up and doesn't dry. It you touch it it will wipe off. It may leave a faint stain, but it won't show up strongly. If you put wax on spray paint then it will make it hard to remove the spray paint and it will also make the spray paint look glossier.
Well it really depends on the type of paint. See there are paints that are low VOC (low Volatile Organic Compounds) these are the ingredients that cause paint to smell. More oil based paints tend to off gas "stink" while the VOC compounds are curing, thus the long lasting smell. Low VOC pains tend...
Every color of paint has a specific code that is used to look up the appropriate mixture of colors, metallic, and pearl for that specific color of paint. So Aquarius Blue would have its own paint code (often located in the driver's door jamb) which can be used to look up the appropriate mixture....

A ratio stick is preprinted stick, either metal or plastic, that allows a user to properly mix paint products. Most paint companies use proportional mixing to insure the correct amounts of each component is added to the final sprayable mixture, (ie. the proper amount of catalyst, and solvent, for...
normally there are two issues, film thickness and substrate. If you "pile" on spray paint, you wind up trapping solvents in the paint film. As the surface of the film dries, or skins, the solvents trapped continued to work out to the atmosphere, but much slower than they were designed to do. As the...

If you are trying to get through the clear and paint to the primer, you should use a 400 grit wet sandpaper followed by 800 grit. It may take some time, but if you use a rougher grit without going back over it with increasingly smaller grits, you will see the scratches from the rougher grit through...
To make beige I would take some brown and white and mix it all together. I cant think of another way how.

In short yes. Over a certain pressure atomised paint can enter the blood stream if it were sprayed directly onto the skin.
There is a color called "Alizarin Crimson," which is crimson and a true red. You could mix cad red med with a bit of black and dioxine violet.
Your ceiling may have been oil based, or really anything other than latex. If you used latex primer over oil then there is really nothing you can do except remove it and get a super low gloss oil base.

The answer is alway yes! However Mustangs have been around and the best results depend upon what year model and hub cap style you have. Aluminum paint will not give you the factory appearance of any metal or plastic that was originally chrome plated. From a distance it will be pleasing to the eye...
Yes,you can. I've seen it done by 'spray bombs' and wasn't impressed. It's better to get a small cheap spray gun and use a compressor.

If both paints are the same base (IE latex is a water base, enamel is an oil base, etc.), they can be mixed. However, that doesn't mean it is a good idea. Paints may contain chemicals that don't react well with one another and produce unwanted finish effects or discoloration. Polyurethane is NOT a...
Yes, or it will take a lot of paint due to the fact that the osb will soak it up.

look into the cowl panel grills on the drivers side. you should see a metal plate about 3x4 inches. near the bottom you will see several 3 numbered codes. The 3 digit code that begins with P is the primary paint code ex: PW7 (that is a Chrysler white used during that year) and the secondary code is...
Lacquer thinner evaporates quicker. It is cleaner or leaves less of a film than paint thinner. Lacquer thinner will thin most solvent based paint but paint thinner shouldn't be used to thin Lacquer. Lacquer dries from the surface painted out and enammal dries from the surface of the paint down to...
Different types of automotive paint have different things in them. Any solvent based paint has things in it that shouldn't be inhaled very much.

I'm guessing this is auto paint. The best rule is to use a reducer of same brand some are not compatible with other brands. e.g.(PPG paint PPG reducer & activator). You will most likely have issues if you mix and match brands. And yes urethane reducer can be used with urethane paint.

take the car to the dealer and demand a new paint job, this is due to lack of a good clear coat during the painting of the car.
There is no point, stain is meant to go over bare wood.
The only way to fix it is to sand it down and repaint the car. It was not painted correctly or you would not have the fish eye finish.
In my area a local shop advertises $350 paint jobs, but if you want good paint and some attention to detail $2000 minimum if they don't do any body work or disassembly.
Depends on which shop does the work. Basically, one gets what they pay for when it comes to body/painting work. Always try to get at least three written estimates before allowing this work to be done ... also ask for warranty information.
You can only find that if you know the manufacturer.

The new hood is probably aftermarket. Most of the time, aftermarket parts don't fit exactly. On hoods, it is usually at the corners by the windshield. The used one may be factory and since they both have to be painted, I would go with the used blue one. That is assuming it doesn't have any damage,...

220 down to around 400/600. Then polish. You have to wet sand or dust off area or blow it off with air often to see what you are doing. 220 will take the clear completely off! If you are block sanding before buffing and polishing, start with 1500 wet then use 2000 wet. You can do it again with...
