I have never done any type of body work. Any tips you guys have will be great. My plan is to keep it black with mtching color accents to the wheels. Like the ground effects and such. Here is what ive done so far. Their are a few dings that needed attention. I took some 400grit wrapped around a good flat stick for a block. Almost like a paint stir stick but thicker and much sturdier. I lightly rubbed out the areas at the dings to get an feel for this new adventure. After scrubbing the clear coat I then proceeded to sand out the dinged portion. Then I applied spot putty with a plastic putty edge. Let it dry. Then blocked out the putty in the best direction following body contours. I feel like it turned out great. The panels are smoother. One ding had a raised edge, but I believe enough blocking took it down. Results equal smooth. All the dings feel like part of continuous body flow. Now im scuffing up the clear coat. Just cutting up the clear, not taking it out. Ive been using the 400grit as well. My idea is to keep this process simple and cost effective. My next step ill be masking off one area at a time. Like a fender, a trunk lid and such. Are these good ideas? What would some of you do? What tricks do you guys have with spray paint? All responses appreciated, so please reply!
