Steps to remove old paint for your car

Step 1: Preparation

Before you start to remove old paint from car, you need to prepare your car. Start by washing the exterior of your car thoroughly to remove any dirt, debris, or grime that might be present. Once the car is clean, use a degreaser to remove any grease or oil that might be present. You can use a commercial degreaser or make your own by mixing equal parts of water and white vinegar.

Step 2: Protect Your Car

Once your car is clean and free of debris, you need to protect it from further damage. Use masking tape to cover any parts of the car that you do not want to be sanded, such as the windows, trim, or headlights. You should also cover the tires and any other parts of the car that are not being worked on.

Step 3: Sanding

Now it’s time to start removing the old paint. Use the BDL9 Purple Ceramic Discs with a sanding machine to remove the paint efficiently. Begin by using a coarse grit sanding disc (60 or 80 grit) to remove the bulk of the old paint. Be sure to work in small sections and move the sander in a circular motion. Once you have removed the majority of the old paint, switch to a finer grit sanding disc (120 or 150 grit) to remove any remaining paint and smooth out the surface. You may need to switch to even finer grits if you are looking for an extremely smooth finish.

Step 4: Clean Up

Once you have finished sanding, it’s time to clean up. Use a vacuum cleaner or compressed air to remove any dust or debris from the surface of the car. You should also wipe down the surface with a clean cloth to remove any remaining dust or debris.

Step 5: Primer

Now that you have removed the old paint and cleaned the surface, it’s time to apply primer. The primer will help the new paint adhere to the surface of the car and provide an even base for the new paint. Apply the primer using a spray gun, working in thin, even layers. Be sure to let the primer dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 6: Paint

Once the primer is dry, it’s time to apply the new paint. You can use a spray gun or a paintbrush to apply the paint, depending on your preference. Apply the paint in thin, even layers, and be sure to allow each layer to dry completely before applying the next one. Depending on the type of paint you are using, you may need to apply multiple coats to achieve the desired finish. Be patient and take your time to ensure that each layer of paint is applied evenly and thoroughly.

Step 7: Finishing Touches

Once the final coat of paint is dry, it’s time to add any finishing touches, such as clear coat or wax with buffing pad. Clear coat will add a protective layer to your new paint job and help it last longer, while wax will add shine and further protect the surface of your car. Apply these products according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and be sure to buff the surface to a high shine.
