painting from a can
I've got a few scratches to get out, so today I went and got a can of paint mixed up. Just a couple of question about actually pulling it off.
Suface prep; What grit should I finish up with? There's a massive scrape on one of the wheel arches, that'll need a bit of filler. What stuff is best?
Plastic prep; bumper needs a bit of work, as does a mirror. What's a good brand of plastic primer? Also need to get some holes out of the bumper, what filler can I use for that?
With painting it, I was just thinking do a coat, sand it flat then another coat, doing three coats of paint and 2 of clear all up. Is this ideal or am I doing it totally wrong?
Any help would be great.
