How to Custom Paint a Car : How to Paint a Car


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. Now, Tony’s painting the second coat on the top of the hood and the
deck lid. We have three paint booths at our shop, so it allows for a great deal of flexibility.
So he’s able to get the car all ready to paint and all the pieces ready to paint and he can
shoot them all at the same time so he doesn’t have to repeat processes too much. He’s going
to get a nice, even pattern on there from one end to the other. He leaves the paint
gun on. Since he’s just spraying the paint off into the air, there’s no need to key it
on and off each time. He’s wearing a nylon suit that we get from our paint distributor
that makes sure that everything is clean. He doesn’t have any dirt from driving to work
or eating lunch on his clothes. Tony’s been at this for years. He’s very methodical, very
careful. And this paint job, oh look at that.
