STEP-BY-STEP

01.

Surface in Good Sound Condition

Wash the panel with water and soap to remove any contaminants. Sand with 180 or 220 grit sandpaper and apply any primer as required.  Spray two coats of primer with 10 minutes between coats. Let it dry for an hour and sand with 400 or 600 grit sandpaper. Make sure not to remove too much of the applied primer, yet ensuring that the surface is as smooth as possible.  Rinse primer dust with water and soap and dry with a clean rag. 

02.

Compromised Surfaces

Same steps as #1, but make sure that any paint that is not well adhered to the surface is removed and leave/sand up to the area that the paint is in good sound condition.  Apply primer as in step #1 yet focusing on a transition with the primer which extends at least 4 inches towards the area where the paint is in good condition. Sand with 400-600 grit sandpaper allowing for a smooth transition between the area that has primer applied.  Rinse with water and soap and dry fully.

03.

Apply paint

Apply as many even coats of paint as needed to achieve coverage of the area.  Never over-saturate the panel with paint as it will case a difference in shade and/or metallic/pearl over or under saturation.  Always allow 10 minutes between coats for the paint to flash (dry) properly.  Once coverage has been achieved and the paint is fanned in properly, allow for the coats of paint to dry for no less than 45 minutes.  Now you may apply the clear coat. Follow the preping steps needed for the clear coat option that you purchased. Apply even coats making sure that it lays down as smooth as possible as you apply it, while being careful not to over-do the amount of clear.  Too much clear will cause it to run. Three coats of clear should be more than enough with a 7 minute time laps between coats. Once you spray the last coat of clear, leave the piece alone until the clear is dry enough to handle.
