Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to
be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It
covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet
was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY
bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type
of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE
REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the
understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to
75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for
Rustoleum Roller Paint Job Done On The Cheap $50 1985 Mustang Convertible 5.0
Here you'll learn how to paint a car for less than $50. Dubbed the
Rustoleum Roller Paint Job. Here's the supplies you'll need:
1-2 Quarts Rustoleum Gloss Paint (Your choice of color)
Gallon (or less) Mineral Spirits
A couple sponge foam paint brushes and / or bristle brushes
4 inch Foam Roller set.
Mix the Rustoleum and the mineral spirits at a 75% to 25% ratio. Or, 3
cups rustoleum, 1 cup mineral spirits. Mix together and roll on. If your
looking for a better finish, you'll spend more time putting on more coats.
If that's what your wanting, make the ratio approx 60 / 40.
This is what my Mustang
looked like before and after a single coat of 75 /25 mix. I'll need to
apply a second coat. Then it should be finished. Quick, cheap and easy.
Tomorrow I'm laying down new pinstriping and taping off the hood for a
stripe to go down the middle.

50 Dollar Paint Job O YEAH part 3
I've been experimenting with the smoke gloss gray on the truck, different
methods of sanding, which grits work best....etc. Here's what I found:
1. Sand with 320 wet before first coat, after 2nd coat, wet sand 800 grit.
2. Apply 3rd and 4th coat, then wet sand with 1000 then 1500 VERY lightly,
until when dry, entire surface looks and feels smooth and uniform. Wait
till you see what it looks like after painting over 1500 grit wetsanded
3. ONLY WETSAND BACK AND FORTH IN STRAIGHT LINES NEVER CIRCLES. If you
follow that rule, your paint will look fantastic.
4. Always use a block with sandpaper ensuring even light pressure when
5. Get the hang of working the paint with the roller. If you see a run,
roll it out, you can fix it right there and then, without waiting to dry
then sand, VERY easily, i've done a few.
6. If your going to glaze over pits, low spots, any spots, make sure you
use the 2 part professional glaze with the cream hardener you mix. Much
better than the ready to use junk. I learned the hard way.
7. Be careful when mixing the body glaze and hardener, Even with the right
mix, you will have MINIMAL time to work with it. Mix it FAST, then slap it
on quick or you'll lose that batch.
8. I cut the paint 50-50 with clear odorless mineral spirits, and have very
good luck with that mix.
9. Not too much paint on the roller or you'll regret it QUICK. I lightly
roll the roller in the paint, cover it completely, then roll the paint off
in the tray so no blobs hit the truck .
10. I'm sure i'll think of something that belongs in the number 10 spot :)
