Sometimes the cracked car paint doesn’t mean the paint surface has cracked. This can happen because the surface of the paint on the car shrivels due to lack of maintenance.
It may also be influenced by other factors, such as frequent exposure to rain or always being in the hot sun. Actually, dealing with cracked car paint on your personal vehicle is certainly quite complicated, let alone it requires serious handling. However, if you want to overcome this, do the following steps.
Clean the cracked surface
All car bodies are cleaned up to the parts that have cracks. We recommend using a grinder to clean the car body panels. However, in the eye of this grinder, it can be replaced with an eye equipped with a wire brush.
But if this tool is not available, car body care can use a scrub to clean it. Use a fairly sharp cloth scrub and scrape until the cracked paint is out of sight.
Wait for the paint to dry
After painting, wait for about 40 minutes for the paint to dry completely.
Furthermore, coarse sanding is done so that after all the paint that was removed, the surface is cleaner without any dead paint remaining. For this case, you can choose 80 grit sandpaper or 1500 fine water sandpaper for a smooth surface. Wait until the sanding marks are gone
Caulking is done
This can be done if the surface of the body is not flat due to the erosion that was done earlier. Then the solution can be to use a thin caulking process which is done the same as putty on other cars. After this is done, then proceed with painting the epoxy.
Car surface paint
Furthermore, painting is done like paint on the surface of a car in general. When the varnish is painted, care must be taken so that the paint and varnish do not mix. Because if this happens, then the crack could happen again. A given paint cannot last for a long time under various conditions.
To paint a car, it is best to determine the amount of thick paint to be used so that all parts can be quickly covered. However, for those who use a standard spray gun, it will be reduced so that the output range is very small. However, if you use an air blower, it is better to increase the mouth so that later the volume will come out a lot even though the paint is thick.
Use best paint
The type of paint that should be used is called best paint. We recommend that you avoid using NC if you want to paint the results. Because the process of best paint paint is easy to apply.
The painting process is done without rushing for good results. It is recommended that there is an interval of about 5 to 10 minutes between each painted coat. Then the next layer of painting is done so that the paint can be covered properly. Add the best paint protection, for maximum results.
Wait until it’s completely dry
After everything is painted, wait again until all the parts that have been painted can dry completely. Well, if it is painted in red or white seralic, it is necessary to give it a white base paint first. The goal is that later red or white serilic paint can quickly cover.
If all the paint is completely dry, then the last step is the cleaning process. This is also done slowly and carefully, don’t let the paint that had just shrivel up again. Use paint that is not too thick to avoid the paint from melting. Make sure you apply the proper way of washing your car too.
