The repainting of astro355

The repainting of astro355

Postby astro355 [OP] » January 14th 2010, 12:45am

I decided a while ago that I was going to repaint my van. I figured that I would start small and learn the tricks of the trade, so to speak.

Image
The first damaged area to be repair. It had an accident with a lawn mower meaning the pushing mower was "pushed" into the van. Left a deep scrape straight to the metal.

Image
The area has been thoroughly cleaned and taped.

Image
Another angle of the area to be repainted.

Image
The scratched area after it was wet-sanded with 400 grit.

Image
Another picture of the sanded area. You can see the rings in this one.

Image
Next the primer was sprayed on. I sprayed on several thin coats to build up the primer. I used a template to help control the hard paint lines which is why you can see an outline.

Image
I used 600 grit to wet-sand the primer area followed up with a 1500 wet sand to remove all of the 600 grit marks.

Image
Jet Black is the paint I will be using for the van. Here is after a couple coats of that paint.

Image
The clear coat is next. As you can see in this picture, the jet black is different than factory black. The difference shows a lot more than it does in person. Last thing to do is buff it out. The spot is dust floating in the air.

Image
Another angle of the finished product. As Munken mentioned to me, the Standox paint I'm using does leave an orange peel effect. Look at the reflection of the light on the quarter panel. Just part of the learning I suppose. Again, the spot is dust floating in the air.

Looks good.
If you put on a little extra clear coat. you can sand it pretty hard once it's cured and get out a lot of the orange peel.

Yup, that's what I did. After looking at it an hour ago, I can sort of see the repair area under the paint. Anybody have an idea of what I did/didn't do to cause that?

That's what I've run into in my early years at playing with body work. The primer looked good, but when the paint went on is when things started showing up.

Did you hand sand or block sand?

Mayby you did'nt sand it enough with the finer sandpapers ?
I'm thinking if you sanded the hell out of it with the finer sand papers and sanded well beyond the little area to keep the panel looking straight would'nt it be impossible for it to show up through your paint and you probally would'nt even need primer , i normally dont use primer because i had a bad experience where it made my paint a little lighter in color , i was thinking if i ever used primer again i would prime the entire panel .
All the vehicles i did'nt use primer on came out perfect .
i would like to see what a Pro like Munken has to tell us as i'm just a backyard painter like you guys.

Using the primer is supposed to save you sanding time by filling the work area. Just as the same reason why I'm wet-sanding instead of dry sanding. I'm sure that the fact that I don't have a block sander is the reason why the sanding area shown threw, as Jasen mentioned.

i probably would have used a small bit of body filler and used that to sand down instead of the primer.

Problem of not using primer is that paint generally does not adhere to bare metal well.

I have moved on to the hood.

Image
Pic of the hood before painting. Its really not straight.

Image
Additional pic of the hood before painting. Again, not straight at all.

Image
Its cleaned and prepped for sanding. You can see even more dents.

Image
After the initial sanding. Just a lot of highs and lows.

Image
After the first filler is added. I'm not crazy about filler but I'm really not crazy about dents and such.

Image
After the first layer of primer. But unfortunately not the last coat of primer.

Chevy hoods have always been trouble. They just always seem to be thin and take damage easily even on cars that don't have the rake of the vans.
You've got an older rig, no worries, I'm sure it'll look better then those stone dent's you had.

I'm watching these rattle can posts pretty closely. I've got a big bubble that cracked on my slider a couple years ago. It showed up shortly after getting side swiped.
I'm going to give it a rattle can repair this spring, as well as the drivers 1/4 panel below the belt, a parking lot present.
