I wanted to ask you how you go about touching up this paint? I have some spots where I've applied some bondo, and to avoid painting the entire panel again I want to know how to apply the paint only to this area and yet have it look as nice as the rest of the area. See pic.

OK People,
Been watching this thread from day one and realy got interested. I used to paint a lot of vehicles with a brush and after getting the feel of it, was hard to tell the differance between my brush jobs an a factory paint job. So i know it can be done. Glad to see that some of you folks are so persistant. Nevern tried it with a roller and i'm impressed with your results. I just finnished joining this site so i can go back and look at the old posts. Cant seem to figure out how to get to them. Can anyone help with that?
Lets Roll!

Has anyone tried black yet?

I have the typical 80's peeling clear coat on my truck hood and roof.

My old paint is shrinking and peeling in spots. Question is do I have to take all the old paint off down to the bare metal or can I just take the peeling paint off? My concern is that if I paint over it, it will peel off later.

Just joined the forum, This is a great topic and I have done a few cars with roller and spray on before. My 70 Duster had just about every color tremclad made. One note you cannot paint over the Aluminum paint. Anything applied over this will peel off badly.

The last post refering to the "stock paint" and painting over. As long as all the loose paint is properly removed and you properly prep the surface you can paint right over.

I've sprayed about five cars with tremclad and seems that the thinned paint is very important with that process as well. Like has been said before the R&B method is less dust and less stink which is always nice.

My newest project is an 82 scirocco that I've reserected out of a wrecking yard here in northern alberta. Body work almost done and I'm going to start laying on the paint very soon. goin to go with the Med Blue gloss as it is close to original color. I was browsing at Can tire and they have a Base Tint with about 50 different color variations
anyone try that yet??

Put the 8th coat on yesterday. There's about 5-6 places that i discovered dings that I didnt see before painting, so I have just fixed those and will have to repaint those panels with an extra 7-8 coats.

The areas that were fixed from the start still aren't covered 100%. I think the cover is about 80% now, so I'm in for another 3 coats minimum on the whole car.

Exit,

That is a great color on a Dart! I like it much better than the almond / cream you were experimenting with. Man your car is going to look very nice!

Looking great! Would you mind taking a shot with something sharp reflecting that's maybe 3-4 feet away from the car? I'm trying to judge how your (lack of) orange peel compares to my results...

I agree. Any different angle shot's?? That look's incredible !! You must feel very good about your effort's. They sure look to have paid off !! I am getting my Satellite media blasted all the way to metal. I also need alittle bondo/ skimming in a couple of places.. Is there any difference with the application or coats from the metal to the bondo's area's ??

I just wetsanded with 1500 so there's not enough shine to take any pics, but I'll try again after the next coat. There really isn't any orange peel but here is another shot before the sanding.



Here are some other pictures after that 8th coat, they are top 4 pics on my photo page here:

There isn't any difference applying it where there's bondo, except the bondo soaks up the 1st coat pretty good.

I need to play with polishing at this point, probably on the hood since I'm not going to use it. I remember the guy with the Z with the stripe (sorry, can't recall the name) had some issues with getting the red to shine.

I'm having a little bit of an issue. I tried something on the hood, I quickly wetsanded with 2000 then went to the turtle wax polish and a little 6" random orbital buffer/polisher. The surface does come out nice and smooth, but the light shines on it, there is like a white haze. The same sort of light haze the paint has after wetsanding. Anyone know what the deal is with that?

I wonder if it just needs more paint layers in order not to do that?

Ill try it again tomorrow and take pics. Im only worried about final sandnig and polishing on certain areas. the bulk of the side of the car comes out without any issues, but the deck lid and some of the horizontal parts tend to have more dust and crap in them.
