  • Painting

    Ok, so my Uncle is practically done doing the fab work on the screen. Now we just need to paint it. The paint that he used was awful. It scratches off if you touch it with your nail, or it gets fingerprints
    So we got some vynil paint, and that seems a bit better, but it still scratches off.

    Anyone have tips/guides on how to paint, and some paint recommendations? I need a black non-glossy for the outside and a black glossy for the inside of the bezel.

      What is the part made out of? You need to match the paint to the substrate. Also a good primer should be used since you most likely have multiple substrates...plastic,body filler, and proably fiberglass. I use an epoxy high fill primer. It will fill medium scratches and sand perfectly smooth with ease. Are you applying the paint with a gun or spray can? What kind of end result are you looking for?

        Oh! What's the texture like?
        How about glossy/nonglossy?

          Well, the thing is that we've had problem painting the stock bezel. Its what came with the car. I need this part to be painted with a non-glossy paint because it would look more stock.


          Spray can.

                  It seems like its only available in flat black.

                  How long did you let it try for? And how long did it take for the primer to dry?

                      i've used sem interior auto trim paint. it is flexible and low sheen. but your problem is surface prep. You have to sand the the piece first then put a flash coat (pretty much a lite speckled coat) the let it dry according to the can. this will give it some 'tooth' then apply the primer coats. let these dry according to the can then top coat.

                      the most important thing about the top coat, besides thin coats, is to apply them within the specified amount of time on the can. if you go over the 15 minutes or so that they say on the can then you have to let the piece fully cure before you can sand and then paint again (48 hours to be safe). regardless; after about 3 coats of product you should sand it a bit.

                              I'm using this one but metallic- charcoal:

                              http://www.sherwin-automotive.com/pr...?product=37853

                              I just put some coats of filler primer.

                              Hope it helps.
