Basic Steps How To Spray Primer Sealer


-Hey, this is Donnie Smith. We’re back with another
video to show you how to prepare, and get
this fender primer sealed. What primer sealer
is, is for hiding. So it helps hide
what’s underneath, so you can’t see
multiple colors. Helps with adhesions,
several different reasons. We’re going to apply
some primer sealer. We’re going to tack it, wipe
it down with wax and grease remover, tack it, apply
the primer sealer, and give you the
steps to do that. First, I’d like to mention our
sponsor, collisionglass.com. You go there, and sign in for
their newsletter for free. Anyway, we’re going to have
Jacob show you the first step now. -First we’re going to use
wax and grease remover get all the contaminants out. Next we’re going to use a tack
cloth, and what this does is, it gets the dirt
or lint off of it. What you can do, open it up,
I just roll it into a ball. See the way of the
tack cloth, you don’t want to press
down too hard. Now we’re going to
go to the [? metal ?] areas with the
self etch primers. -OK, now we’ve got to
prep the primer sealer. And this primer requires
a one full wet coat, which means a real good coat. And what that does
is color hiding, so everything is
one uniform color. You won’t have the
light and dark spots when you go to paint. And also, when you’re
selecting your primer sealer, you want to use one that’s
close to the color you’re going to be painting. We’re going to be
painting these a black. So we have dark grey. That’s the darkest sealer
that we have, for the type that we’re using. And, when beginning to
spray overlap is important. So you want to start with half
you overlap off the panel, and half on. So that some of the overspray
is landing off the panel. So, when I start, I’m
going to start right here. And then when I end, you won’t
have to spray off the panel. So you always want to start
with half on, half off. And then each overlap,
you want it to overlap 50% the solid paint. So I’ll shoot a coat, overlap
that coat 50%, come back. And then starting to, when
learning how to paint, 8 to 12 inches is a pretty
safe distance to learn. You have more room for error. If you hesitate for a moment,
or something like that, it’s not going to
immediately run on you. As you become more
experienced to paint, and the more you
paint, you may find it more comfortable to
get a little bit closer. But you’ve got to
remember, if you’re closer, you’re going to
have to move faster. If you’re further away, you’re
going to have to move slower. So that’s just something that
you’ll kind of have to adjust. But anyway, we’re going
to go ahead and shoot a full wet coat, on this fender. Primer sealer. And we’ll show you
how to do that. First, I want to
get all my edges, then I’ll come back and do
the main portion of this. [SPRAYING]
