The Devil is in the Details

A tip from 28 years of experience….
It has come to my attention while testing product for a major retail program, that spot testing is highly advantageous – whether it is painting or buffing and that knowing what you are dealing with can really save time.
The dynamics of “AUTOMOTIVE” paint refinishing are as such that the costs and time required to perform the task are forever escalating. Taking the time in advance to really know what your particular job has in store for you might really pay off for you by doing a little investigation prior to taking on the whole project. For example – you’ve just finished prepping your 1978 Chevy Camero for paint. Your body work is completed and ready for a fresh new coat of paint. Now depending on whether you selected a tri-coat color, a base coat clear coat or simply a single stage application, they will all buff differently – guaranteed! Do yourself a favor and spray, then buff a test panel prior to hitting the whole vehicle – you’ll be glad you did. You will not only save yourself time and money but you will know what you are dealing with and what to expect!
