angel159164: so all i need is a primer and the a sealer and final a base coat?
seasonedtoker: hey, nice videos. one question about prepping. I was wondering how to prep
primed surfaces? I go with 400-800 on the bare metal, but then after
priming I only used synthetic polymer wool similar to steel wool. should it
be the same as bare preping? maybe coarser or finer? thanks a lot
yahuh310: Thanx for the tips!!!!
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @ahawnt Anywhere from 400 to 600 will be fine. It just takes a little
longer to sand with 600, but it will be fine adhesion. Let me know if you
have any other questions. Thanks for watching!
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @theciskokidd I posted a video reply to this question. Check the messages
to see video. Thanks for watching!
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @angel159164 If the grill has paint on it, you can just sand with 400-500
grit, wash with soap and water, tack, shoot base coat, then clear coat. If
the black is raw plastic, (no paint) you will need sand, wash, tack, then
spray with plastic adhesion promoter, apply primer sealer, base coat, and
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @robertdeuce Epoxy primer is not needed for small metal spots as you
described. I would use a light coat of etch primer from an aresol can
before applying the surfacer though. 2) If the car is different colors
(primer spots) I would recommend using sealer for color hiding. It is not
required. If you have primed your entire car and blocked it out with 2k,
there will not be a need to use it. Sealer is for achieving hiding (uses
less paint to cover) faster and it provides adhesion.

top 10% are earning 88,000
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: There are some sealers that are epoxies. If that is the case you should be
fine. However, the primer needs to be a type of etching primer or epoxy for
bare steel. You may see if the can recommends that if it can be applied
directly to steel or not.
RUDY G: what brand is it? also any suggestions for hvlp guns?
Scott H: On many videos, I see painters spray the entire car and bumper covers with
the same paint mix. Is a flex agent to be used on bumper covers ? If so,
does the flex agent get mixed into primer, sealer, base and clear ? If not
all, which ? Do painters mix a flex agent and spray the entire vehicle ?
Benefits or problems with this ? Thanks
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @PeteLSxMARO Epoxy primer or etch primer should be applied over the bare
metal. if you have scratches needing filled, you can apply primer surfacer
on top of the epoxy or etch primer. The surfacer will need to be sanded
before painting. Pressure depends on gun, but 20 to 30 should work. You can
check out my guides at CollisionBlast(dot)com/DIYHowToGuides for detailed
information. Thanks for watching the video.
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @surikan1 We use PPG products. Thanks for watching!
roldancbu: @ButlerCollision I'm located in the Cebu Island, Philippines, no PPG or
Shopline products here but I used ANZAHL because they're popular and very
good product but they're quite pricey, sometimes I used reasonable priced
ones(like hi-build primers 1st to 2nd coats then final coated with anzahl
to max my budget). We have 3M safety equipment here, I bought 6200
respirator w/ 6006 cartridges. Sadly, in our country, car painting
materials are limited.
blackriflex39: i trim first when primeing should i be doing it last?
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @neilnjack No, if the old paint is not peeling or anything, you can final
sand and paint. I prefer to use sealer, but you do not have to. However, if
you sand through and hit metal, you will need to primer that spot before
Shakeitupyes: How did you prime it and prep it, also why are the car parts off of the
car? Is that a better way to paint? I dunno how to take my car parts off.
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @roldancbu Yes, epoxy can be used for sealer. It sprays on great and can be
top coated with base coat. What brand of paint is available where you are
at? Do they have PPG or Shopline?
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @taylorb2053 You do not need to block the epoxy. You can spray your 2k
primer surfacer over the epoxy, if sprayed within the window. The 2k
preimer surfacer is what should be blocked.
angel159164: @ButlerCollision yes its a front grill for my white honda civic 99 i wanna
paint around it cuz its black
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @StarMarvellionInSg Primer sealer is for hiding and adhesion. If you have a
new fender that is black and your car is silver, it will take many coats of
silver paint to prevent the fender from being darker than the car, due to
the black underneath. However, by using a light grey sealer, which will
cover the black, then you can spray your base, without the worry of the
black showing through. Thanks for watching.

DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @HighPerformance7uner The 3M half mask will work fine for you. Make sure it
is designed for paint. That is all we use at school. If I was painting all
day every day, as a painter at a shop, an air supplied would be a better

WikidWDK: do u use your the same gun you spray surfacer with? and what is your psi
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @Amopower Epoxy primer is the superior primer for bare metal to produce
adhesion. If no body work is needed, I would sand the metal with 320 grit
to assure everything is ready and apply epoxy primer, base and clear.

roldancbu: Hi Mr. Smith! Is diluted epoxy primer a substitute of primer sealer? all
paint stores here don't have one.
DIY How To Paint A Car Repair Videos With Donnie Smith: @smithjo4152 You can take them off and scuff them with a red scotch-bright
scuff pad. 1st was and clean them with soap and water, wipe them with wax
and grease remover, then scuff them. You can lay the panels on stands where
the jamb is easy to get to. Then reinstall and mask the jambs off before
painting the outside of the car. The only other option is to paint them
while on the car, but it is hard to sand and spray around the hinges.
