Touching up with spray can

I went to the local paint shop and got them to match my paint.

They gave me Pro Form Self Etching Primer, the spray paint, and Dupli Color Acrylic Enamel clear coat.

I clearly wasn't thinking...as it is 43F where I live right now and I dont have a heated garage. Has anyone tried this in this type of weather. I'm sure it wouldn't work out...

Re: Touching up with spray can

You're better off hitting any spots that absolutely need protection with some generic rattle-can primer, and then doing the job right when it warms up next spring.

you're already looking at less than favorable results with the products you're using, follow the directions for best results.

Re: Touching up with spray can

painting in the cold will not result in good paint jobs. the paint never properly cures... but if its small areas, and is really bugging you, give it a shot, whats the worst that can happen? you would just have to redo it again...

Re: Touching up with spray can

You definitely can't paint in this weather outside. It will just lift. Trust me, I work at a collision shop. Best temp is 70 and above.

But when you go to do it make sure you sand down your primer with some 400 or 800 grit though after you spray that. Then LIGHT coats of color until it covers, then 2-3 coats of clear. Don't rush it.

Tie the blow drier to your arm and set it to 'High'. Now we're thinking like Engineers, solving problems 'n ****.

lol, that might just work, but blow the surface with a blow dryer first to warm it up, spray it, then wait a minute or so, and blow it again to keep it warm, repeat process till all coats applied and then blow it dry

Re: Touching up with spray can

Put the rattle cans in the microwave for 5 minutes to warm up the paint. Problem solved.

If it was 60, you could use the jet engine looking heater to keep the room you would be working 70-80* no humidity. You're gonna wind up wasting your supplies. Chich car parts? Can you remove them?

'Cause anyone who's done Thermodynamics I will know that you'll radiate heat off the cold metal surface as fast as you can warm it with the little bit of heat a blow drier puts out, so as soon as you take away the heat source, it's cold again. Now, if you want to heat up the metal with a blowtorch...but that runs a higher risk.

Re: Touching up with spray can

if you have to paint outdoors, let it sit in the sun for a while first, keep the paint can warm until time to paint, spray the sun warmed spot, let that stay in the sun as long as possible.

now for keeping it warm after: check the forecast. do this when forecast calls for sunshine a couple days in a row.
1) get some magnets, a blanket(thick is best), some hand warmers (home depot check counter 88 cent type).and something to make a table with, (wood is best).
2) table should be a bit lower than painted area. blanket surrounds table and rests on car. put hand warmers on the table. drape the blaket over table like a tent.
3) place magnets over the cloth to fasten it over the car.
the hand warmers will generate heat. the tent will hold the heat.
next day, put car back in the sun.. repeat as necessary. if it's real cold outside you can make a tent from clear plastic. the sun will keep the tent warm like a greenhouse..

i have succesfully finished small wood projects using this method.

also for heat you can pour a bag of sakrete in a bucket and add water. the water reactes with the cement, thus creating heat as well. 5 hour concrete gets hotter but heat doesn't last as long..regular heats about 48 hours but doesn't get very hot.

Re: Touching up with spray can

I've decided to get the one bigger patch on the wing professionally done, and I'm waiting for the spring to touch up the skuffs myself

Thanks for the advice
