    Always learning on YouTube 🙂 . I'm in the process of restoring a car at home and and it is a long tern project I'm after information on what would be the best way to preserve raw steel , I am under the opinion that primer hardens after time and paint could flake off and also that primer absorbs moisture

    Isn't there primer surfacers that are darker? so if your paint is gonna be black,is it possible for a light grey to show through black tho?

    Sealer helps prevent paint cross contamination. If you sand clear coat and bust through to the base, spraying the new base on the old can cause a solvent reaction and lifting that you will see later on when you apply the clear. I just had that happen yesterday. I sprayed some sealer to prevent the new and old base from reacting to each other.

    Hi, Donnie I need an advise from you about the primer sealer: My important question are: Do I have to use primer sealer on this white door?, I will paint the white Door the same color of my car 92U=POLY SILVER-METALLIC-DAEWOO NUBIRA (J100), 1999 After I remove the white color do I have to primer the whole door? PLEASE SEE THE PICTURE WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO EXACTLY AT THE LINK BELOW: https://s5.postimg.org/iaf0td3fr/REPLACING_DOOR.jpg I will appreciate your advise, thanks.

    What color primer do I need for a red pant [Base coat] Its dodge "Flame Red" also I'm  only putting primer on one fender and I want to prep the rest of the truck so I can paint and put clear on it. what would you recommend for a sanding grit if I am just painting over the same color. thanks

    Hey Love your videos. Just a quick question. Im painting my bonnet black color and was wondering after i have applied primer can i put another brand base coat that is black and that is a similar product but different brand to save on my original paint color and then continue on top of that with my original base coat black color instead of spraying 3 4 coats with my expensive base coat? Thanks.

    Does a hot woman need to be present before you apply base coat?

    Does the sealer need to be sanded before adding base coat?

    Thats the prob I'm having is see the repairs through the basecoat. Bare metal I used etch primer but on the repairs later. I didn't fill over etch primer. Should I keep adding base or should I 2k over the base and start again?

    Great tips. Lets say you are completely repainting a fender. On this fender you have areas of spot primer as well as areas of good shape base/clear that has been scuffed down and feathered into the spot primer areas. When spraying the new base coat will you paint the spot primed areas first to get color over the primer prior to coating the whole panel? In other words, apply 2-3 coats of base over primer spots then 2-3 coats over the entire panel?

    Donnie, great video and very informative. Just a quick question, the truck I am doing has various spot primers all over it. I feathered them all out smooth and also washed the entire truck down with 600 grit wet. The areas where I don't have spot primer are sanded clear coat. There are various small burn throughs through the existing clear that I want to shoot my new base coat over. Is it ok to simply dust these burn throughs very lightly with my new base coat until they are covered and flashed off then paint the entire panel? I know people get worried about the reducer in the new base coat reacting with the edges of the existing base coat but my thoughts are if you lightly dust them and get coverage and you are 100% certain it is flashed correctly you will not get any problems down the line right? In other words, if you can get the base coat down without any reactions the clear coat won't cause any problems down the road right? Thanks!

    I'm no professional, but I do my best. anyway when I was 18 years old I repaired a front fender, on a dark blue car. I used gray primer, my dad looked at it and said, better use a darker primer, I asked why. he said go ahead and spray it then walked away. 5 minutes later he came back and said now you know why… paint was light blue and didn't match the original dark blue.
