The process of painting your car starts with hosing down the whole vehicle. The professionals do this to get rid of any dirt and smudges on the surface of the car.
A power sander is then used to strip the old paint away. It does this in circular motions. Most of the corners are tricky areas where the technicians use manual sand paper to avoid damaging the lights, the windshield, and the windows. After sanding, all dust, debris and the remnants of the sandpaper are wiped down. These particles usually cause imperfections in the paint when it is applied to them.
If your car is not to be painted completely, sanding is only done to the areas that require painting. The rest of the places are then covered out with paper during painting along with the windows, lights, side mirrors, handles, and the windshield.
The first substance to be applied on the car is a coat of the primer mixed with thinners. Two or three coats of the primer are applied to cover the whole surface of the vehicle. It is then given some time to dry. It is powder when dry.
After the primer has dried up, it is smoothed with sandpaper. Then three to four coats of paint are applied to the car. Other coats may be added after the initial coat dries and the professional painter feels that the car is not properly done. A clear coat lacquer is applied last after the application of the paint. Your car is then buffed with a soft buffer to give it the final finish.
