How to Custom Paint a Car : How to Sand a Car Before Painting


Hi, I’m Doug, I work with 20 great guys in
Saint Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods and we are going to do some work for you on
Expert Village. Okay we are going to paint a 63 Impala coverable now. The car has been
completely disassembled. All the body work has been done, this car was rusty. Now we
have the final primer on there and the first thing we are going to do is sand it and get
it all ready to shot. This car is going black and you have to get the car absolutely perfectly
straight and flat in order for black to look good. The body man has done lately. We have
really good men at the shop, the car is really good. But the painter is the last step of
the quality insurance system that we have. So the painter does the final sand on the
car. He would take it down to 320 or 400 depending on the grate of paint that we are using. He
is going to go over this car and we would get it shot black.
