And this is how it works:
Preparation
The new sheet metal part must be accurately checked for fit, align any processing errors, bearing or cargo damage and adjust.
The old sheet metal part with a dull paint must be taped over at the edge so that the adjacent areas are not damaged during sanding and painting.
Easy Repair Professional tip: Create a dust and insect free environment. When working in the garage, the floor should be wet to avoid dust.
If you paint outdoors, it should be absolutely windless, the earlier in the morning, the fewer insects that sit on the freshly painted surface.
Should it nevertheless happen, remove the insect with tweezers as long as the paint is still wet. The paint spans and corrects the error by itself.

Sanding, priming and sanding again
The protective primer, which was usually very irregularly applied by the manufacturer as rust protection during storage and transport, must be sanded thoroughly.
Likewise, the old dull paint must be sanded thoroughly.
On the ground surface, cleaned with silicone remover, apply primer in two thin layers.
Allow to air for 5 minutes between spraying runs. After 20 minutes, the part is dry and can now be sanded.
Grind the primer with water sandpaper grade P600 or finer.
Painting If the primer filler is applied, dry (after approx. 20 min.) And sanded, color finally comes into play with the paint spray !
Shake the paint spray vigorously for 5 minutes until the ball stops audibly and everything is well mixed. Attach the handle to the first thin layer of paint (adhesive layer) and spray on for 3 minutes.
Then apply the varnish in further fine layers until you have a nice evenly covering varnish color. Always observe 3 minutes ventilation time between layers.
The ideal spray distance is 30 cm, the ideal temperature 15 to 20 degrees.
Attention! Do not spray on too much at once, otherwise there will be tearing of the running paint … In the film, Max shows step by step how to do it right.
Clearcoat – Topcoat After approx. 30 min. Drying time comes the clearcoat over the paint layer.
Also shake the clear coat well again and apply thinly in 3-5 layers and allow to air after each spray.
The clearcoat protects the metallic particles from oxidation, it makes the paint shine and is absolutely necessary as a protective layer.
Attention! For varnishes no clear coat is required. In case of uncertainty, either e-mail max@dasauto.at or call the hotline (+43 (0) 3687 24515 during business hours).
Finished ? If you still find small edges, transitions or tears in the paint somewhere, then that’s no problem: After 2 to 3 days, the clear coat is completely cured and the edge is simply removed very carefully with water sanding paper P2000 and then polished to a high gloss.
Of course you will now polish the whole car and preserve it with hard wax . High gloss and high spirits! Congratulations!
