How to paint the chips and scratches on the car by yourself

  1. I had a similar problem with painting a bumper on a Mitsubishi space vehicle 1997, the color is light, I asked for a bolon, and the brush did not turn out exactly, I had to go to the store and buy a sprayer
  2. Try on a different detail
  3. A lot of novice drivers face a problem there was a small scratch, but in the service they say repaint the whole detail and want a lot of money for it. And if there is no money? Then there are several options to try to remedy the situation. First, it is necessary to decide which methods of restoration of the LCP can be applied.
    1. Polishing
    The easiest. Unfortunately it is only used for minor abrasions of paint, if the paint is torn off to the ground will not help. Plus, that polish the car even on some car washes (most do not need to bother) and it's worth several hundred rubles, which is much less than the cost of repainting the details
    2. Special pencil
    Reminds the appearance of the glue-pencil. Basically, you can zataritsya from the official dealer, or on some great market. Helps with minor scratches (barely visible putty) and abrasions. The disadvantage is that it is necessary to tint periodically with the same pencil, because the substance has a property to evaporate with time. The cost of a pencil is also several hundred rubles. Before applying the pencil, it is necessary to degrease the surface.
    3. Brushes for touching.
    A disposable device that looks like mascara. One-off because the compound has a bad property to dry out after opening. It is used for more specific scratches, it is also necessary to degrease the coating before use. The cost of 100-200 is rupee. Plus, in contrast to simple paint, this tube contains a special composition with fiberglass, which does not require mandatory primer application. (i.e., you can paint over live)
    4. Directly the can with enamel.
    It is used for good scratches (possibly to metal). But the whole procedure will be more complicated than all the methods described above.
    If the chip is not up to the metal, read from the point
    a. If there is rust on the cleavage, remove the rust carefully
    b. Degrease well (and now it is better to use a special degreaser, because witespirit leaves an oil film because it is made on the basis of kerosene) and let dry for about 2-5 minutes.
    at. Apply primer (preferably anti-corrosion). Apply carefully and a thin layer, trying not to get on the paint. Waiting for 10-20 minutes. If the layer turned thin do not touch anything and do further. If the primer is too thick neatly with a small nazhdachkoy remove the excess, dry cloth or napkin remove the dust and degrease.
    d. Apply a thin layer of paint. Let's dry 5-10 minutes. Make the second layer. Again, waiting for 5-10 minutes. When painting it is very important not to apply a thick layer, but it will swell, and not overlay the existing paint can raise the edges. Do not worry if the color seems a little darker after drying lightens.
    etc. If the color of the machine is metallic and there is a varnish, and there is a desire to make the chip more invisible, we apply varnish. Better versatile. Again, a thin layer. Remember the lacquer dries at least 30 minutes. If the chip is large and the vertical part of the body, it is recommended to go by car no earlier than 2-3 hours.
    During the day, in no case can not wet the place of painting.
    Degreasing is done with a lint-free cloth moistened in the used composition until wet, but not wet (it should not drip!)
    Painting outdoors can be at a temperature of at least 15-20 degrees and better in the sun, but where less wind and dust.
