Quality Restoration Tips for Your Car’s Paint
When it comes to auto paint restoration, it’s best to start by inspecting the damaged area properly. By doing so, the chances of selecting the proper product and restoring the paint’s condition will be much better. Because of the high number of choices available, it’s not advisable to use whatever paint that’s on hand, for any reason. You have to see to it that you’ve got the right paint for your paint restoration project. On that note, here are things to consider before a car paint restoration:
Consider the age and type of paint
It’s also important to consider the age and type of paint used for the restoration. Using new paint is a great idea, especially if there’s no other choice. Then, it’s best to use either a paint refinisher or a paint sealant that’s specifically designed for auto paint. If the damage isn’t too severe, applying clear coat paint may be an option.
Check the depth of the damage
In this case, it’s necessary to consult with your auto body shop and determine if the damage is deep enough. If it is, it’s best to consult with a professional painter and use primer, or two coats of clear coat paint. If the damage is in an area that’s less than a quarter of an inch, it’s best to use leather paint or a leather dye. If the paint or dye has already dried, sand it with some fine-grit sandpaper and apply a new coat.
Consider the age of your car
Of course, if you have a restored car that’s at least 15 years old, you’re probably looking at having to replace the auto paint. In this case, and if there’s no other choice, consider these tips.
