How long does it take to just do a panel like that? A day or weekend
No sanding between coats??
There was no need to use a grinder to take the spot to bare metal. A rough sand with 180 grit would have done great and the Bondo (which is crap by the way) would have had plenty to hold onto.
So after prep sanding you don’t have to sand anymore ?
What kind of paint/primer did you use
First mistake was using bondo as a filler.always use kitty hair or short strand fiberglass.it doesnt shrink and fills in big dented areas.ha bit harder to sand but well worth it in the long run. bondo is only used for small shopping cart dents and final finish for sand scratches..then maybe a small bit of glaze putty to finish off the bodywork.the dough will look great for about 6 mths then you will have problems

Great video! Truck looks even better! Maybe you could give us a little more details on products and sand paper numbers? And whatever else you used? It would be even better then!Thanks for the lesson though!
Play music sound like the music they play When the bill collectors call you and they put you on hold
Personally I appreciate it he is teaching us thanks
Good video! Thank you! How wide of a spray pattern did you use?
I am having a problem. The Base paint keeps peeling off the area where the Bondex is. The bondex is only about 1/16 thick I sanded it with 220 wiped it down with alcohol waited about 4 hours sprayed the base waited 24 hours then started to sand with 400 grid. Why is this happening? what is the solution?
Thank you for a really good video here.
how long did you take to paint it
don't know why most all these videos have dumb ass music.
well done, comprehensive guide in a short few mins..cheers
I remember the first time I painted a car.. It was my pride n Joy Mustang Cobra.. I bought it cheap cuz it needed a paint job.. I drove it for a year and then decided to do it myself.. I was nervous as hell, but, It turned out to be simpler than I thought.. Watch the videos and read the books. "The only thing you have to fear, is fear itself" .. I practiced on an old sheet of plywood first.. I took my time cuz, "The Devil is in the details" .. It came out great.. 5 years later, I sold it for a lot more than I paid for it.. Painting is actually fun and rewarding.. I like it, So, I painted my girlfreind's car, both girlfriends.. I went on to painting racing stripes on my car, Flames on my Father's car, my Mother's kitchen chairs and then everything else. LOL..
Am I watching a DIY video or the weather channel scrolling through the regional temperatures??
And that's not a car that's a truck
what size compressor is recommend for painting a car at your garage?
thanks. this video great…
Great video I want to ask what's the flash time for primer if you spray more than one coat and what's the sanding paper used for sand primerAlso how long to wait before base coat and what's flash time between base coats it's laquer acrylic And how long do you wait to spray clear for the base coat?And what's flash time for this to spray more than one coat Sorry for too many questions but Iam in the process
Great video !! Straight to the point
What PSI did you run at the gun? What base did you use? what kind of clear?
Nice video, thanks. How long did you leave between coats?
get a DA and ditch the grinder….
For me:Step 1: Bring it to a professionalStep 2: Pay a few thousand bucksStep 3: Pick it up and be happy.
You need to mention that you have to wait about 15 minutes between coats
what can I do to prevent orange peel in from clear coat or paint
How long do you let the paint dry before the 2nd paint and clear coat?
i dont know how can anyone do paint at home in this way. its like going to workshop and watching person doing paint job.
I wouldn't use body filler on cardboard, absorbs moisture and makes it bubble more or weakens.
Dear Lord THANK YOU! Finally a video that clearly states each step with no yammering on and on and clear visual examples. Looked FOREVER for a video like this! Awesome!
Great video! Thank you for sharing. I have been trying to figure this out, so I can paint my truck. I would rather learn how to do it myself, then pay someone.
you made a few mistakes in the first minutes of video ,when you pop out you dent from the inside you need to work it some more ,you dont just pop it out and thats done ,including hammering the swage line [belt mould] downwards to hold out your main dent you just popped out ,not smash it down ,just lightly to put pressure pushing out so when someone leans on your ute it wont pop back in where was before you started .Another point ,the yellow tape around the window , thats going to protect 1 inch around the window,when you grind the dent back to bare metal grinding sparks fly and hit the window /rh door mirror and burn into it,rub your hands over the glass now and it will feel like sandpaper and you will notice rust spots later in the glass ,better option is mask it up properly and at least first 1/2 metre with paper on door and 1/4 panel and double or triple up on the tape ,layer on layer,paying extra attention to the door handle this way if you accidentally hit the door or handle with your sand block when working with 36 grit [thats probably what you started with on plastic filler] it wont scratch it with the sandpaper and avoids another job,also you wont get overspray with your primer ,a pair of disposable overalls are cheap . you may spend less time denibbing your job .when you spray your basecoat you spray your grey patch first ,and work out ,that way you get say 4 or 5 coats of colour on the patch and say 2 or 3 on the rest of your door.you sprayed it like you were doing a repaint.
Is the first part for dents and stuff like that?
Any paint thinner used?
