How to Restore a Car’s Paint Job : How to Remove Tape from Wet Car Paint


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 Andy’s going to pull the masking off while the paint is wet. He
just set his paint gun down. But because we put the masking over the still wet primer
we want to get that masking tape off as quick as we can. And, as long as the paint is wet
on the masking tape and paper it won’t flake off and fall into the fresh paint. So, if
you get it when the paint is still really green, and you pull at just the right angle.
See how Andy’s kind of pulling back at an angle there? He’s trying not to pull off any
of that sealer. And, by golly, once again he’s successful. That’s why he makes the medium
bucks I guess. So, success. He didn’t have any big black chunks fall off into the paint
work. Got the paint while it was still green. Now we’re ready to go ahead with our white.
