I sanded through my clearcoat, doh!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Maybe I just suck at painting.

Anyway, I can just do color + clear again, right? I don't have to sand, prime, color, clear?

Thanks for any help.

correct , aslong as all the clear coat is off .. the paint will need a surface to stick to , the old paint will act as primer.

wrong. all you need to do is get a scotch brite pad or around 1000grit paper and skuff the clear. you don't need to sand it off, just rub till it becomes cloudy with light fine scratch's.

sorry but your wrong.. the post before you is correct..

if you sand through the paint aswell then use a primer..

use etching primer on bare metal or use an acrylic primer on plastic.. make sure to wash/degrease the material before primer is added and dont forget to lightly sand between coats with a very fine grit paper..

Just feather it back in. Depending on how deep you got, you can mask off the area around the bad area and just reshoot that then blend the clear coat back in.

no it is not.. you do not have to remove the clear. he sanded through a spot on the clear to the color layer. why would you sand off the rest of the clear? i use high end paint every day for a living, and have for a long time including on some show cars. there is no reason to take all the clear of for a touch up spot or a full repaint as long as it is scuffed and not to bare metal.
