I advertised once in Craigslist for a painter and got two guys moonlighting from an auto body shop in Sacramento. I had filler sanding dust on EVERYTHING in my garage and they spent three weeks doing it.

Color sand the original paint and call it primer. Then shoot one stage for original type, or two stage with a clear coat for non-original high polish finish.

   ill remove all trim and strip off old paint ,>


if the primer is still factory original (red) do not make the mistake so many do and strip it off. its baked on and adheres like nothing else. you can't duplicate it once its gone.

i always thought it nonsense to strip all the paint to do a restoration . kind of like , if it aint broke don't fix it but sometimes depending on the new paint used , it can't be helped ------------------------------------later

If its only a few spots, it would be a lot cheaper to fix those spots (may be previous rust repair coming back) than go a full paint job

Just sanding the paint thats there to roughen it up a bit will have your arms crying for mercy

The actual spraying is quite easy, its the preparation that makes or breaks a paint job

You wouldnt take all the paint off unless you really had to (paint cracking/crazing, flaking off or mostly gone anyway), but unless you know what type of paint is on the car, I would spray an isolation coat first (after prep) then do your top coat

okay, what im told is, it was a quick paint job, cheap paint job, what ever is under the paint is lifting, could be just sloppy prep,

Could be?

Paint wont stick to oil and that includes the oil from your fingers, if they didnt wipe it down with prepsol, to get rid of the finger oil and sanding dust, the paint can lift

Worse if its actually filler thats lifting because what you can see will go further

I have had cars that a small bit of filler had lifted and when I went to fix it, it came off in a big sheet

If you do this, make sure that its not going to be a big hassle if you have to re repair an entire panel

See if you can break or chip the bubbled bit to see if its just paint or more
