Mick D: Hi Barry, I'm a rookie sprayer so I'm sorry to all the advanced guys
reading this.if it is a stupid question. *___* I have a small area on my
vehicle where the CC has peeled off and I'd like to reseal it as best as
possible without a major refinish. _*__* With a bit of care, and masking
during spraying (I was thinking a careful cut-out spaced say 10mm from the
surface).and then spraying. _*__* I'm wondering if that has a possibility
of being to be successful if I light sand and polish after the spray? *___*
I'm looking for OK, not "concours d'elegance" standard as it is an older
(non-classic) car so I am prepared to have a go, on that basis. *___* It
is ugly now and protected paint is better than unprotected - right? *___*
If I have success neatly "replacing" the CC, would you then recommend a
complete panel Clear Coat? _*__* I can probably find out what was used in
the repair shop to match product used as closely as possible. _*__* I'd
greatly appreciate your thoughts and I'm off to view a few more of your
vids as I liked this one.
Review Guy: How do you get such a fine spray ? My hvlp devilbiss gun always lays down
rough no matter what you do or how thin you make the clear. Or any coat for
that matter. Is it my gun ?? or something im doing wrong ?
Shayne Ferguson: Nice video. The ws400 lays it down lovely. I use that gun everyday. It's
the best in the business.
Barry Winslow: You have some great vids, thanks
freakyflow: Painted my first few cars with your products No real trainning in a very
old spray booth with gaps in the doors etc.. Having said that each job
looks great also did a complete paint job ( GM rootbeer code ) and clear
and people love the color and the wet look it has 2 months later
Building Supply: Great video. Good tips and straight to the point.
todd baker: Is a .8 nozzle size too small for clear?
Rock&Roll: Very good demonstration on clear coat. Now if I could only get ppl to stop
touching my car.
Global Finishing Solutions: Great video! Nice paint booth you've got there! :)
Cw Magna: Good video dude!
cednik: Nice video. Can anyone please explain me the reason for flash of time
between coats? What does flash of time affects if its not enough long or
too short. I know the coats must chemicly react before they can be recoated
itselve, so does it mean that if its too short the final clear might not
reach desired hardness? Iam asking this because my sprayed clearcoats are
not enough hard so I can even after month make some light marks by pushing
the finger nail hard in. Thanks!
Lois Wallace: Your advice is great, but what about the average person who doesn't own a
professional spray gun? I bought some clearcoat in an aresol can from
Automotive TouchUp and got the first coat on and the can ran out of air.
Now, I have a rough, hazy finish. I am a 76 year old woman who tried to
fix a little scrape that has now become a huge mess. I am so angry with
Automotive Touch-Up!! Don't buy from them. They don't answer their phone
and won't call me back.
Salah Hassan صلاح الساعدي: thank you
Antoine Finch: What color blue is that color code please,primer want that look
Global Finishing Solutions: Great video from Pro-Spray Automotive Finishes on spraying automotive clear
coat. Nice paint booth they've got, too! :)
Joseph Gonzalez: does wet sanding the clear coat after is being laid down and dry make the
Andrew Zimmern: @Rob ert at least 30 minutes in between different coats.
donjonsone1: Heed what this man says! I've been a professional auto painter for 35 yrs,
and I can tell you, flash time is one of the most important aspects of
spraying clear coat. In warm conditions at least 15 min and in cooler temps
1/2 hour. Nice video Pro Spray!
Dav Rock: You've to feather edge the area nicely ie.use a great amount of feathering
area-probably the whole panel than recoat with the right type of clr.coat
mat. that won't peel of & adhere to the present coat on that surface.Ask
the agent selling the stuff&hopefully they'll turn out experienced enough &
give U the right solution.Bcos usually the customer service guys R so
inexperienced|& lazy or 'discriminational'.Which's a major issue in
Vancouver.Its a shame man!
Nghia Nguyen: I have a hand size clear coat that peeled off. Can I simply spray clear
coat on that are and polish the area off? Does that work or the "colors"
Rob ert: How long do I have to wait until the paint is fully dry to apply clear
coat? My Father said a couple of weeks, is that true?
janiam7: Hello, thats a stunning result! Do you pull the trigger to the end or
somewhere halfway? And what jet/ needle size did you use? Very good
tutorial by the way!
bones8510: HELP PLEASE....im using a gloss clear with a flatting agent on my matt
black wheels, and i thinned it with general purpose thinners. i couldnt buy
matt clear so the agent was my best option. frustratingly all i got was a
white powdery effect on the outer edges of the spray fan. i tried all
different pressures and spray patterns to get a wet look but nothing
worked. what causes this powdery effect and how is it eliminated...cheers
Scare crowrx: I really like the way hey explains this, i've painted a few cars and always
had a bit of trouble where clear looked amazing some places( where i
overlapped 75%) and other places where i should of taken my time.
ProSprayAutoFinishes: Hello janiam7, thanks for the shout out. In the video, we used a 1.3 fluid
tip. A 1.4 could work as well for slightly warmer temperatures or large
panels to paint. The key is, no matter which tip you prefer: 2 complete,
closed coats must be applied. I full trigger from start of the panel to end
of the panel generally letting off after I complete each pass.
ruggeri5054: sometimes, if it lays down nice and even without imperfections no, but if
there is some orange peel or fish eyes.. yeah wetsand with 2000 grit, and
if that does not cut it down, move down to 1500 or 1000 at the lowest. Then
once it is even and cut, move back up to 2000-3000 and then buff with foam
ProSprayAutoFinishes: Thank you, Tinnie Singh. Greetings from the US!
Hmoob Vaaj: @juan M...no if it came out clean...yes if theres dirt, runs, or
imperfections...but usually its alwase good to wet sand wit 1200grit n buff
it even if ur car came out nice it'll give u that glass shine like showcar
TinnieSingh: Very clear instructions. Greetings from UK
Juan M: Do you have to wet sand/buff the clear coat after it has dried?
altizmo: You make it look so easy. I either put too much on and get a run or too
little and get a blurred look. I am new at this and I know practice make
rainey238: Greetings. Chris Rainey here. I'm a certified master painter. Loved the
video! Great explaination of gun angle and distance. I did however have one
concern about your spray technique. I understand that this is a small
demonstration panel, but if you were on a real car, spraying from bottom to
top in a downdraft booth would not be good. You want your spray to flow
with the air circulation. This means start at the top and work your way
ProSprayAutoFinishes: That's awesome! Glad it helped.
