HOW TO PAINT A CAR

Painting your car at home can be a cost-effective way to give your car an upgrade. However, you must prepare your vehicle properly to achieve the desired outcome. Getting a flawless finish requires high-quality products, which you can find at NAPA Auto Parts. Follow these steps to achieve a perfect paint job.

  1. Preparation - Prepping your car for a paint job is essential to achieving a smooth finish. Begin by cleaning your car with a good automotive soap to start with a fresh surface. Harsh substances such as tree sap are often difficult to remove from your vehicle without damaging the paint, so consider adding a tree sap remover to your cleaning product collection. If you are doing a complete paint job, a paint stripper will help remove several layers of paint at a time. Next, mask your car with masking paper and masking tape- this will prevent overspray and ensure you only paint where intended. Clean and organize your workspace and ensure you have the necessary PPE (personal protective equipment), such as face shields and respirators, to keep you safe.
  2. Sanding and body work - Body repair such as dent repair, rust repair, and body filling is necessary to achieve a smooth paint finish. Failing to effectively prep your car can lead to an orange peel surface or a messy paint job. Dents can be repaired with a hammer and body dolly to reshape the vehicle exterior, or by dent pulling with a suction cup. Scratches, paint chips, and rock chips may seem minor, but they must be repaired using body filler before you apply other products to your car. Once these imperfections have been repaired, you must sand down rough areas using sandpaper, an electric sander, or a sanding block. This will remove paint and clear coat that were already on your car to ensure a fully clean surface.
  3. Primer and painting - Primer ensures proper adhesion of the paint by creating a smooth and even base. It prevents moisture from reaching the metal surface and damaging your vehicle's exterior. Once you reach this step, you must identify your car paint code to find the exact shade of your vehicle's make and model. You can now select your desired paint and begin applying thin layers until your desired colour is achieved. Using spray paint is an easy way to do this- a spray can or spray gun facilitates an even application of layers. Keep your car in a well-ventilated and clean area while it dries. You must also apply a clear coat to protect your paint layers from UV rays and other contaminants.
  4. Curing and finishing touches - Cure time is crucial to ensuring the longevity of your paint job. You must ensure that the paint is completely dry and free from any moisture before driving your car. To achieve a professional finish, you'll want to polish and buff your vehicle as a final step. Using a polisher or polishing cloth enhances the shine and luster of your paint job, removing imperfections and leaving you with a flawless surface.

HOW TO FIND A CAR PAINT CODE

Every vehicle has a unique car colour that is identifiable by a car paint code. This code is typically a combination of three to six letters and/or numbers that are unique to your vehicle's make and model. This information is usually found on a sticker inside the driver-side door jamb or in your owner's manual. Once you have the code, you can head to your nearest NAPA CMAX store and get your car's exact shade of paint mixed by one of our experts. Our stores guarantee a perfect colour match every time.
