Introduction

This guide is for people who do not have the time or money to get their car professionally painted. It is also for the people who prefer do-it-yourself repair jobs.

    • Start with a coarse grain.

    • Then move to a fine grain to remove any sharp edges.

    • Allow to dry for 10 minutes or until the area feels dry when touched.
