How To Fix / Repair Paint Damage On Your Car Yourself With Spray Cans And Save Big Money


hey guys it’s Jason from the rubber duck Channel today we’ve got a really cool project my father bought an old Jaguar and he owned a car just like this back in the late 80s and loved it he always talked about it and never wanted to sell it but he did like a lot of us do with our cars we wish we never sold them and you know this this car just spoke to him and he fell in love with it and he’s missed it ever since so it was really neat to see him buy this old car again that you know he had when I was a kid and you know he brought it by and he’s really proud of it the only problem is up on the passenger side fender there’s a horrible gash just you know the paint’s missing it’s about four inches long and it’s all rusted there’s a dent there and it just looks awful it’s a it’s it’s certainly a big black eye on this car so I wanted to fix it for him and I thought this would be a great time to pull the video out and show you guys how I go about doing that you know he got some quotes from a body shop and it was anywhere from a thousand all the way up to fifteen hundred dollars from one body shop so you certainly can do that if that’s what you want to do but if you’re interested in fixing this kind of stuff yourself and getting professional results I’m going to show you how I do it today I’ve talked about in a lot of other videos how I do paint and body work for friends and family and myself and and this would be a great video I thought to take you through the whole process so I’m gonna show you the supplies you need and you know how you can fix this for around seventy-five dollars and then we’ll show you the process and and hopefully you guys will really like the video so let’s head over to the bench and I’ll show you all the supplies we need all right so here’s we’re gonna be using today we are going to be using every coat metal glaze it’s polyester finishing a blending buddy because the damage is not terrible to the fender we’re not going to have to use full bondo this is kind of a step between bondo and say like a glaze so it’s it’s right in between it’s going to be perfect for this job it’s also easy to sand and easy to work with so gonna need blue veiner state we’re gonna need several assortment of sandpaper you’re going to need definitely some drop cloth or something to cover the rest of the car and then as far as paint we’re going to be using we are going to be using this is a base coat clear coat so this is going to be your base right here and you can see that this is chrome X jagwire Morland green is what the color code came back has so that is a base coat and here is on the same family we are using the rapid cut in spot clear coat we’re going to clear over it and we are going to use a spot blender as well this is a clear coat blender so it’ll hide the line and the halo that traditionally you weren’t able to hide so this is a great product to have and for primer we’re we didn’t do anything fancy I’m just using rust-oleum filler primer this is uh this is a pretty good over-the-counter primer that’s cheap and will hide a lot of imperfections so this is the primer we’re going to use so let’s go out to the car we’ll take a look at the damage okay so here we are at the passenger side fender of the Jaguar that my father bought and you know this is what we’re looking at here this area is about four inches long or so it’s not terrible but it’s starting to rust and there’s a small if you run your you can’t even see it but if you run your hand over it right in here you can feel a small dent that’s what that that’s what that ever coat in there is gonna take up it’s not a big enough dent to really require you know full bondo or anything’s we’re gonna put a little skim coat of of that on here and we’ll sand it out and it’ll be really good so the first step here is we’re gonna get we’re gonna start with 150 grit sandpaper and we’re just going to start to blend and knock off the hard edge of this paint right here and get it about as smooth as we can before putting the ever glaze on there alright so we just finished with 150 and I’m just gonna wipe this down with a nice wet towel to kind of get this out of the way see where we’re at and that exposed a lot of it and we got a nice nice roughed up surface perfect for the perfect for the glaze so gonna just keep that nice and clean as we can and it’s time to go mix up the glaze all right so we applied it and I applied it a little thick down here but the reason I did that is because I want to make sure that did we we completely cover that we completely cover that dent there so and it is completely covered and it’s in the Sun here so this stuff is dry and really quick I’m gonna give it a few more minutes maybe 10 total and then we’ll start we’ll start sanding it and knocking it down and getting it real nice and then we’ll start to start priming the car all right so now we’ve gone through three grits of sandpaper we’ve gone through 150 220 and I finished it off with 400 and I roughed up a little bit beyond both sides because I wanted to know how I’m gonna lay the play the base in the clear this is is perfectly smooth now you can’t feel any dents so we’re ready to go ahead and lay a base of filler primer on and start seeing where we’re at all right so we’ve got it as you can see we’ve got the whole car masked off we’re leaving this area right here and we’re just gonna work as close as we can into this area right here we’re gonna try not to get up to where we’d get a line or anything else and we’re just gonna prime it and so we’re gonna prime it right now and we’ll pick the video up after we shoot a little spot prime on it okay so here we are after about four coats of the base coat and we tried to stick you know to this area as best we can and we’re letting this dry flash about 20-30 minutes and then we’re gonna go ahead and hit the clear and then put the blender on so we’ll see how that goes with the blender we’re gonna try to just hit where this sides stop on the clear so you have to be aware of how you’re doing that as far as doing it up here this is tricky because there’s a Thursday there was a body line right here which is why I use that because it’ll mask it’ll mask any kind of lip I’m trying to avoid a lip at all and you know we’re just gonna wet sand and polish that to kind of blend this this this top part here but I just don’t think I’m gonna be able to do any blender in here there’s just no space and I really don’t want to move this back and put it on top of the Pinstripe and all that so this is about the best we’re gonna get and then but when we when we clear coat it and use a blender out on the sides here and then wet sand and polish it it should it should be very very good repair so we’ll pick it up here in about 20 minutes when we do the clear all right so here we are after three coats of clear and it looks beautiful so I’ve pulled up the tape a little bit on each side I’m gonna spray a final light coat of clear and then I am going to use the blender in this area here where I stopped on the other side and then I’m going to just try to use the blender up on where this line is since I really don’t want to pull the line up there’s tape up because of the Pinstripe and I’m sorry I’m talking kind of funny I’ve still got my mask on so that might be why I sound funny so anyway we’re gonna go ahead and get it with the last coat of clear and then hit it with a blender real fast and we’ll see how it comes up alright guys so here we are here’s the fender after we are done spraying the last coat of clear and the blender and a little bit around the top there it’s got a little bit of a haze right in this area right here but that’s because we actually wet sanded it before we started and that’s going to be all buffed out so it actually looks really beautiful just like that but in a couple of days we’re gonna wet sand it and buff it and it looks it’ll look fantastic so we just do a little bit of a walk around here I’ll bring you in try to get you as close up as I can but that’s it she looks great well I really turned out great it just it’s like it was never there so anyway I hope you enjoyed the video I hope I tried to show you some easy steps you guys can follow for doing a repair at home right out on your driveway and save yourself a lot of money so anyway I
