How to Restore a Car’s Paint Job : How to Tape the Body Line When Painting 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. Alex is getting the car prepped to paint the smallest area possible
on the car. So Alex is going to mask what we don’t want paint to get on. He starts by
masking off the body line on the car. Our plan is going to be to put white on the repair
area and blend the white away from the repair area partly onto the door. So Alex is masking
the door off. It’s going to get white on part of it and the whole thing gets clear coat
of the top of it. You can break the white. You can see there’s a pin stripe there, a
black stripe. Alex is masking right up to that stripe so we have a good break in the
white paint.
