    Thread: Lets see Rattle Can or flat/satin/matte Paint Jobs

    1. 08-27-2009 02:09 PM #71
      Great Thread! This thread made me get off my butt and enroll in a autobody course. The first is for dents and such using body hammers and the second course is p/s/p/c.

      So at some point I will be spraying some paint and will be hitting you up. I would be looking to spray Pearlescent White from a 04 Acura TL. I have to spray the trunk and bumpers on that car and am thinking about painting the 87 rocco the same. This is a tri color and looking on paintscratch they state the midcoat is priced with the base. Could you explain that statement?
      I'm a total rookie at this but pretty confident I can tackle it with enough research and a few small jobs under me to get some experience.

      maybe i dont understand but what would a rack do with hanging the doors. i dont see why 2 people cant do them?

      i'm not saying it can't be done, but they have door racks that hold the bottom at the right height and angle so when you're hanging it on the hinges, you don't have to unbolt and rebolt to line it up 4000 times.

      if you're not even enrolled in a course you are a looooooong way away from spraying a 3 stage paint man. the way a three stage works is you lay a base color, then lay a candy color, then you clear. if you don't know how to paint really really well, you end up with a lot of color variation and really ugly paint work. it takes a LOT of practice to do it properly.

      i see, did not know they had special racks for that.i must have gotten lucky then that my rear door went back so easily after taking it off.

      sometimes if you don't paint the jambs you can use the marking on the hinge to line the door back up close enough. but the proper way is to use a rack for sure.

      Take a 1/8 drill bit, while the door is on, and drill through the hinge and into the body. Take the door off, do whatever, and then when you're ready to put it back on, use a nail or something of the sort to slide into your guide hole.

      It'll work, saw it on tv.

      yeah but then you have a nice place for rust to start from with an 1/8" water hole drilled into your door jamb... i don't know if i like tv haha

      i know it man... working is definitely killing me. since i'm already up that way, i'd say i should swing up after work, but 78 at 6pm is a nightmare. call me this weekend.

      as far as the jambs, call me "overkill" but i'd end up welding the spot or pressing in some short strand before i painted over it.

      what is that coating? Rhino Liner or like a wrinkle finish? Almost reminds me of Fleck Stone. Nice with the blue though. Is that stuff hard to keep clean being textured like that?

      U-pol Raptor (bedliner) color-matched to the factory Galactic Blue.

      Rinse it off with a hose and its good as new.

      if done with real hot rod black paint, it would be close to the same as a regular job. Primer would probably be a bit cheaper, and DIY would be a lot cheaper. Get a gallon of epoxy black primer, a Harbor Freight paint gun, and shoot away if cost is a big deal. Paint shops still have to prep the vehicle which is where most of the cost is. Single stage vs. 2 stage is more work and extra components since you would be doing a base coat, clear coat. Just depends on what you want to pay.

      For comparison purposes...the Jetta was just over $400. That's EVERYTHING. Supplies and paint. A "flat" paint job would probably be cheaper than that.
