Default re-painting a civic

hey guys i know before the forum page there was a reallllly good how-to thread on painting your car. Everything from sanding it down to the paint and clear coat. I was wondering if that was saved anywhere and if that person who wrote it, could pm me or some how help me out here. Thanks guys.

have you checked through all the DIY threads? it may not be listed on your screen right now, but go to the bottom. there will be a box that says something to the effect of "show threads from:" and scroll down to beginning. then go over and click on "show threads". this will give you all the pages of DIY threads that were posted. if it was in DIY, it'll be there. hope this helps!

i've never painted it myself, but when you decide to colorsand it... that I've done before.

And when you paint it yourself, believe me, you're going to want to colorsand it. You WILL have orange peel.

pointers when spraying a car, dont 2nd guess yourself you will end up with sags, when you do spray keep your wrist stiff and not swinging side to side you will end up with a really shitty paint job move the gun with your arm not your wrist. Also keep about a outstretched hand (from the thumb to the pinkie) distance from the car or it will either be to heavy and saggy looking (to close) or streaky, orange peel, etc(if you hold it to far away)

Pics? What brand/type of paint did you use?

My '88 Snatchback is primer black, and I'm thinking about painting it

I always feel like an ass when I don't document my projects (like when i painted my car, (black of all colors)). Yea, that link sonny gave is pretty good.

I found that practice is important when you start spraying. Practice your methods of body repair, priming and painting on an extra fender.... your car will thank you.
