painting over a perfectly good car
SO. I have a grand marquis project car that Im going to use to learn the ins and outs of customizing on, because its a cheap car and Id rather learn how to do stuff than sell it for $1500. No matter what I do to the MGM, its not going to lose any more value, but it possibly could gain value. I have to learn this stuff, but I don't wanna try it on a car of value.
The next thing I want to do to it is learn how to paint. Can I just sand the perfectly good clearcoat that's on it right now, and then apply some primer and start there?
I don't want that orange-peel look that a lot of people get on their cars when they paint them at home. Can I polish the actual base coat before clear goes on? Im totally new so idk if that will cause swirls or something that I wont notice until clear goes on. I almost think that "How To Paint-- For Dummies" could be a sticky in this forum
