How do I go about prepping my nbs door handles to color match? I'm going to buy a set so I don't have to rush it but I've never done this on a textured peice. I will be taking the handles apart
This goes for the bumper cap as well? Same products and steps ?If you are buying a set, buy a set already smoothed so you don't have to sand the texture out. I assume you will be rattle canning it.
1. Clean surface well with dish soap/water, let dry.
2. Adhesion promoter
3. Primer (preferably 2k)
4. Sand smooth with 400, 600, 800, and 1500 or 2000 if you are motivated.
6. Clear (preferably 2k, SprayMax is very good)
So I clean surface, spray promoter, than primer, then sand , then base coat? Correct?For adhesion promoter, I have used Bulldog with good results, and SprayMax makes a 2k epoxy primer and clear. I haven't used any 2k primer, but just know the 2k stuff is better than the 1k. The 2k SprayMax clear I have used with great results. I would never use duplicolor or the like again.
Eastwood recently came out with a line of 2k aerosols that you might check out, I am sure they are pretty similar to the SprayMax stuff.
As for the base, if you have had good luck with automotive touchup, then stick with them IMO.
