How to Remove a Clear Coat Run Using Polyester Putty
Visit us @ http://www.refinishnetwork.com Refinish Network consists of various professional and enthusiast painters whom work collectively to help eachother out using the websites discussion forum. You will also find various helpful 'how to' articles from painting to body repairs. This is a little run left in the clear coat. It is removed with no ghosting by applying polyester putty over the run first, then sanding it down flat and polishing to shine. It sucks to have happen but every painter has had a clear coat run from time to time. Removing a run takes some patience and time. but you can save a paint job when its done right. Let the run dry thoroughly before attempting this of the run can tear up from the clear coat. I have gotten many clear coat runs and many have resulted in resprays, as time goes on you get better and it happens much less...some clear coats are more prone to run then others to so consider changing your clearcoat or equipment set-up if you keep getting em!

$25 Honda Civic Tremclad/Rustoleum paint job..flat black in 5 hours
Painting a 2001 Honda Civic flat black..5 hours start to finish..total cost ..around $25...we used 1/2 gallon of Tremclad(same as rustoleum) flat black rust paint thinned by 1/3 with mineral spirits and sprayed with an hvlp gun at 30 psi for 3 coats,final coat at 50 psi for a more textured flat look....a few bugs and dust chunks got into the paint since we did it on the driveway on a fairly windy afternoon..not a big deal because flat black is so simple to touch up once dried..Connor did pretty good for his first time with a spray gun. I know this video will be flamed a ton,but hey he did what he wanted to his car,and it cost him almost nothing...it looks really good all things considered.

DIY: Wrapping Rims in Matte Black Vinyl
I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 This short video shows you how to wrap a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at portabuddy@gmail.com Or come contact me at 8thcivic.com please don't send a message though youtube, I don't come here often. third year! http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q110/portabuddy/winter/winter1_zps4be883 10.jpg Check it out on ebay for the full written DIY. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 Or visit my ebay page at http://stores.ebay.ca/Sauga-Image and scroll down to Matte Black Vinyl Rim Wrap 6x 24"x24" Also the first song uses is a -rusko remix its rusko hold on sub focus remix, the second song is -supersonic the world of discotronic and the last song is the classic -chemical brothers hay boy hay girl with a dunstep remix.
