Aerosol Painting

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have just had to buy a new wing mirror for my Ford Focus Zetec.

The best i could find was one that was primed ready for paint. I then managed to get a Ford Jeans Blue aerosol and Lacquer.

Having never aerosol painted before I am feeling a bit dubious about doing it because of potential drips etc.

Would you class this as a relatively easy job and has anybody any tips.

Many thanks in advance !

hi it is quite an easy job i would advise shaking it for a good min or two and apply layer by layer till your happy dont hold to close hold about 5 inches away or it will run and laquer is clear anyway so just trying to rember where u sprayed and thats about it. :)

Thanks for the reply Titch.

How long do you give between each coat and how long between last coat and putting the laquer on.

Thanks !!

i would give it till its about touch dry or could wait a couple hours for it to properly then go over it with a bit 1500 sand paper then do another coat for a really good finish and then leave it for another couple hours then apply the laquer then leave overnight
