How to Custom Paint a Car : How to Fill a Car Paint Gun

Hi I’m Doug. I work with twenty great guys
in St. Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods, and we’re going to do some work for you today
on Expert Village. Okay at the paint distributor where you get your paint from, they’ll sell
you these graduated cups so that you can get the mixing ratio just right. When I learned
to paint when I was in high school, the guy I learned to paint from just did it by intuition,
he just poured some of this, some of that. There’s none of that going on in our shop.
He uses the graduated cup, and than the same paint distributor will sell you these paper
filters. It does not take a whole lot to clog a paint gun. Always filter this stuff carefully.
And Tony has a liner in that cup for his paint gun. So now he puts the lid on it and he’ll
be ready to paint.
