Surface Preparation: Thoroughly clean the area to be repaired with wax and grease remover (glass cleaner can be used as a substitute) & let dry completely. Therefore, use wax and grease remover with a clean lint free shop towel (blue towel) to assure the surface is free of wax, oil, and other surface contaminates. (only apply wax and grease remover to the towel, never directly on paint).

Masking: Use automotive grade masking tape and masking paper to mask off area sanded or filled area. Then dry scuff the panel to be painted & clean with wax & grease remover.

Spray Paint Application: Shake can vigorously for 30 seconds. When done, spray several light coats on masked-off areas, waiting 5-10 minutes between each coat. Allow to dry for 10 minutes, then remove tape & masking paper.
