Hi, I’m Doug I work with 20 great guys in
St. Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods and we are going to do some work for your
today on Expert Village. Dan has finished painting the piece. You saw being clear coated
and now he is doing a final color sand and buff. When you apply the clear coat in the
booth, it comes out very nice. It lays down really sleeks, it looks really nice like a
new car. But this is custom car, it is a hot rod, it has to be done better then a new car.
So Dan takes 2000 girt sand paper after the clear coat has had a chance to dry overnight
or so. You don’t want it to dry for 2 weeks but you want to let it dry for at least 10-12
hours. Then he color sands it to get any slight affection out of the clear. There would be
little bits of dust that has to be dealt with. There might be some runs that get in the clear
coat you can sand those runs out. There might be a orange peel the texture of clear when
it dries sometimes it is not absolutely glass smooth. So he takes 2000 grits sand paper
and knocks that texture out of it.
