Painting doors

Hey there Forum... My drivers side door and fender have some paint damage and I went to totally repaint them. Since I am repainting them the same color that they already are does the prep change at all to do this or does anyone have any advice on this. I have my gun and compressor and have done paint at other times as well. So, I am just trying to now figure out how the prep should go on this since it is keeping the same color.

Thank you!!!

No just sand the damaged areass make sure theyre smooth tape off and paint. Only problem you may find is matching you paint if it is faded

Hmmm if you want to find the same colour as your faded paint, try napa. I'm pretty sure that if you can chip off a piece of your door paint, they can do a colour match on it.

Thanks for the advice. Should I just paint the faded piece or would I do better painting the whole door so I can get a smooth and consistent finish.

Look on the driver side door jam. It will tell you the color code so you can take it to any auto parts store to do a color match

You are right TYoung68. I may end up having to paint more than the door? :/ There are some areas that are faded, but the doors are in really bad condition. I guess I can start with just sanding the doors down on the black to give them something to grab the paint and then the damaged area I will sand smooth, prime and paint the whole door and try to polish the faded areas of the car
