How To Spray Automotive Clear Coat




What do you think about this video?

Rock&Roll: Very good demonstration on clear coat. Now if I could only get ppl to stop touching my car.

Barry Winslow: You have some great vids, thanks

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 ? 

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.

todd baker: Is a .8 nozzle size too small for clear?

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

Cw Magna: Good video dude!

Joseph Gonzalez: does wet sanding the clear coat after is being laid down and dry make the panel shine?

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! :)

Global Finishing Solutions: Great video! Nice paint booth you've got there! :)

Salah Hassan صلاح الساعدي: thank you

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" won't match?

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.

noskings: proper preparation prevents piss poor performance

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 pads

ProSprayAutoFinishes: Thank you, Tinnie Singh. Greetings from the US!

motokyle1988: What a useless video

HolyWestCoast: Awesome tutorial, really helped me! :)

Sand-Blaster Mike: Do you sand the paint before you spray clear?

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 perfect

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 down.

ProSprayAutoFinishes: That's awesome! Glad it helped.

School: Thanks for teaching us how to fix it. The problem with most Medical assistant in california is usually the cost of education. Hopefully it'll pay off. Thanks again.
