Painting the machine with your own hands
Motorists with experience well know that duringThe longest operation of the car is most affected by the body and paint. Rains and slush, salt on roads in the winter, frequent washing, sunlight - all this has a detrimental effect on the paint of the car. It fades, loses its luster. And if to add to it mechanical damages - scratches from trees, small chips from pebbles flying off from under the wheels of oncoming cars, it becomes clear - the painting of the car is necessary.
Not always the owner of the car comes to a decisionpaint it only because it lost its original appearance. Someone wants to just refresh the color, someone wants to change this color to a new one, someone has decided to turn his car into a chameleon, and someone just needs to put some drawing - airbrushing. Before embarking on the embodiment of your dream into reality, it is necessary to know what this interesting process is - the painting of the machine.
It should immediately be noted that this is sufficienttime-consuming and responsible work. It requires experience, possession of different painting technologies. The final result will largely depend on the quality of the preparation of the car for painting and the materials used, as well as the skills of the master who will perform this work.
The painting of the machine can be performed by twoways. You can paint only the outer surfaces of the car, and then remove the bumpers, handles and other decorative overhead elements. Headlights, glasses, seals are covered with paper or paint tape. When using this method, high-quality painting can not be achieved. Traces may remain in the form of streaks or splashes on the glasses and seals.
In addition, it should be borne in mind that the painting machinethis way is not made in a special chamber, but in a normal working box, where it is dusty and dirty. Consequently, there is a serious problem with the rough, uneven surface of the painted car. The car with freshly dyed paint remains to dry in the same dusty box. This method can please the owner of the car only by its cheapness - it's much cheaper to pour a car with paint than to drive it into a special chamber and paint it completely.
A more effective method is to paint the machine inspecial chamber. The cost of such work is much higher. If you use this method, most of the money for painting will go to the preliminary preparation. From how the machine is prepared for painting, the final result depends to a large extent.
First remove the old paint from the machine. This is usually done with sandpaper. Then, every detail is cleaned of rust and immediately covered with anti-corrosion primer. If there are minor damages, they are eliminated with a putty, and over it a layer of filler is applied. The treated part is thoroughly dried and ground to a perfectly flat surface.
For painting the car in the camera from the machine removeall that is possible - leave only the bare body. It is placed in a chamber and stained, then dried, varnished, again dried and polished. It remains only to assemble the car. The machine looks like it's just off the assembly line.
There is another least expensive method -painting the machine with your own hands using a can. You buy a balloon of the desired color and spray it on the surface of the body. Completely paint the car in this way you are unlikely to succeed, but small scratches are quite possible to eliminate.
