Project paintwork restoration!
So I have to take on the task of fixing the paintwork on my newly aquired Alfa, for some reason that just defies logic the previous owner decided to try and 'fix' the stone chips on the car of which there are many with this horrible black paint as opposed to doing it the right way with the right paint. Such a shame as Blue Vela is a lovely colour and he really has made a balls of this, what we have now is half the car covered in these big black blotches and half covered in paint chips, front is the worst but it's in places all over.
So , I can't afford a full respray but I can't leave it like this so I am going to attempt to fix this myself with the right paint , method and patience over the next few weeks. I've matched the paint code and started picking up the various bits and pieces I'll need.
3 cans of blue vela colour code 400 paint.
T-Cut colour blue
Car wax & polish
Sandpaper & Blocks
I think I'll tackle the black parts first, I'll need to sand them all right down and out to the primer at least. Once they are all out I'll have a base to work with, then wet sand all the other stone shipped parts and dry, apply a few coats of paint to each area until it looks well, dry , apply t-cut to blend in and scratch remover then allow to dry. Apply clear coat of laquer and after drying wax and buff to finish.
Hopefully that will work, it can't look any worst than it is now. Anyone have any advice maybe someone has done this before?
Car doesn't deserve this abuse, she needs TLC.
