This shows a minor scrape on a Mazda Miata. The scratch was feathered out,
primed and painted using BASF paint. There are many ways to get the job
done, this is what was done here:
1. The scratch was feathered out using 280 grit paper until each color was
seperated around 1/2".
2. Next it was backsanded to allow space for the primer to adhere.
3. It was primed with 2 coats of Glasurit 285-10/20 direct to metal
urethane primer and allowed to dry. It was primed with a devilbiss
finishline HVLP gun with a 1.6 tip.
4. Next it was blocksanded using 320 paper, then final sanded with some
400-500 grit paper. Using a block is optional there but recommended.
5. After taping it up it was painted using RM Diamont basecoat in 3 coats.
Each coat was allowed to flash about 5 minutes before the next one. Then 15
minutes before clearing. An Iwata LPH400 was used to apply the basecoat at
about 20 psi.
6. The clear coat used here was BASF DC5335 Glamour clear. It was applied
in 2 coats with about 10 minutes between coats. It was applied using an
Iwata W400 with about 26 PSI at the gauge.
A few dirt nibs were colorsanded and polished afterwards.

1973 Plymouth Roadrunner frame straightening
Riverside Restorations, Manotick ON, mid 2008. Due to all my moves, the
house fire etc. I lost track of this video nugget. Enjoy the hi tech frame
straightening machine and automotive chiropractic science at its best. The
car X's out perfectly now (believe it or not) and the final moments of the
vid show the Runner as it is today.
1965 Chevelle: Spraying Final Primer Video V8TV
Once the Standox Sprayable Polyester was block sanded to a 220 grit
surface, body tech John Blandford prepped our 1965 Chevelle's body for a
couple coats of DuPont Hot Prime primer. The Hot Prime is part of the Hot
Hues line, and provides the last sandable layer before final sealer and
then color. John sprayed the primer using a SATA KLC spraygun and the 3M
PPS cup system. The KLC HVLP low overspray primer and filler gun for its
ability to finely atomize heavier materials reducing the amount of sanding
needed for a flat surface, and the PPS cup system makes clean-up simple
with less solvent waste. The next chapter in the '65 Chevelle story...
