How to Repair Clear Coat Fix 100% all types



hey guys matt from Orr's so today we're doing a video on repairing a clear course as you can see the clear coat on this vehicle is in very poor condition I'm going to show you step by step process and how you can repair the home and it won't cost a lot of money okay so the first thing we're going to do using some soapy water is wash down the fender and remove any dirt or debris okay so now we got some 800 grit sandpaper I'm gonna start sanding down the worst of the damage okay so as you can see there's still a ridge left behind it's important this Ridge is completely sanded away and is invisible before we move on to the next step okay so I'm just rub my finger over where the ridge was previously you can't actually feel the ridge anymore so now it's good enough to move on to the next step just clean it down with a microfiber towel now we're going to use 1500 grit sandpaper to sand down the rest of the fender again we're going to take our microfiber clod we're gonna clean out an entire fender okay so you could wait for the fender to dry it but I'm gonna use a heat gun there to speed the process up [Applause] okay so it's important in check little areas like this where water could be hiding make sure there's no water trapped anywhere in along here or along any robbers that way I can come back out onto the surface when you're painting okay so next we get some masking tape and wanna mask up the entire area ready for paint okay so the clear coat is so bad on this truck that I've had to get base coat mixed up and also this is the 2k clear coat will be using sometimes you can get away with just using clear coat and it'll cover a lot of the damage but in this case mine is so bad that we've had to get the base coat make stop so it will be going on before they clear coat okay so here I'm giving a quick robe of attack rag before I put the base coat on I'm just a light quarter of the base coat I don't go too far down the fender here there is a chance to the shade could be different just getting heavy enough cord to cover there is where the clear coat was peeling okay so the pay is called color should have a dull but uniform finish in this case I think was a wise choice because if we clear coated only over this I don't need the results would have been good okay so this is the clear coat we're gonna be using it's a 2 K clear it gives a high-gloss finish and is extremely scratch resistance after 24 hours it can be mechanically polished and is a very tough superior gloss finish okay so we're gonna tack rag the panel down one more time just to make sure no dust has settled on it and I want to put on the clear I'm gonna put on one light clear coat first and then we're gonna wait for about five minutes and put on a second a heavier coat okay so the second cause Dre there now it's a nice deep shine on it and even finish as well especially from a spread kind of it's a it's pretty really good results now it's time to remove the mask and then we'll just bring it outside and see what it looks like okay so here these guys want the mask and removed nice even shine art from an aerosol can it's a it's pretty good results here's the contrast as well the clear coat was badly peeled along the top of the fender now it's all repaired it's a pretty easy process and you can do it at home it doesn't cost a lot of money and I hope you enjoyed the video thanks for watching

  1. I love it… for my old truck and my old vw.. this is a whole lot better than looking like rotted cheese…and beats the shit out of spending a few grand on a 20 year old car.. that is only effooked up in spots.

  2. I have a few questions to ask about the video that you done. I am having the same problem with my vehicle. I have a 2004 GMC Envoy. How can I show you pictures of my vehicle? I already have two cans of clearcoat 2K.

  3. Fantastic video!

    I have a 85 Corvette with horrible clear coat on the hood. Is this method safe for fiberglass vehicles as well? The paint itself is still in good shape it appears.

    Thanks,
    Jareth
