Paint Issues

My paint is pretty decent. Just haven't had the money to get a claybar to it to get the roughness off of it. I have a few imperfections in it like black spots of where paints gone and bubbling on my driver side door handle, and little swirl marks where I was trying to fix my headlights with a sand pad. I would love to fix them and get my paint back to it's original glory. Is there a way to do this myself with the paint work or should I just take it to a paint shop and get it done? If the latter, how much would it probably cost?

Re: Paint Issues

First things first... Post pics. We can't even begin to imagine what's going on without visual aid.

Re: Paint Issues

There's no hope for the door handle; it has to be sanded smooth and repainted.

Can't really tell what's going on with the fender, but it looks like the paint chipped off completely. Like I said, can't really tell. The scratches will come out with diligence and polishing compound.

The scuffs on the bumper will require a claybar or polishing compound to remove, as long as the paint's still good underneath.

Yeah, me too. I just wonder how much this will cost me. I would like to get my car painted, but was told it'd be about $2200 for full paint job. :(

Re: Paint Issues

So what's that spot on the front fender?
Also, repainting the door handles should be a snap, in all honesty.

Re: Paint Issues

Is that the original color? Shouldn't be too hard to match if it is.
