Spot painting

Posted: Monday, June 17, 2013 2:27 PM Quote
I have a couple of areas where the paint has been damaged--usually by me whacking into some componet.  I am not an experienced painter.  Most of what I know I have learned from your videos and my mistakes.  If an area of a few square inches needs to be spot painted, what is the best way to blend that in?  I know that auot body shops do that all the time and manage to make it all invisible.

Cars have a base coat/clear coat on them and the body shops cut and buff the final results so that there is no "halo" around the repair.  EkoPoly Premium or EkoCrylic can be cut and buffed.  If you have the older EkoPoly then I would try to mask and respray an entire area within any natural boundaries like a lap joint or rivet line.
