Pick a proper time and place
Strictly avoid painting in wind, rain and snow. Some paints won’t cure properly in overly cold, hot or humid conditions. It is not recommended for you to paint in spring because the air is filled with pollens and bugs.

Anyone would go crazy at the sight of bugs resting on your freshly painted car.
A car should be painted indoors. Painting over a lawn or under a tree will guarantee you will have a lot of insects or leaves embedded in your paint. A two car garage works very well.

A clean workplace or garage is also essential for a successful paint job. Make sure the garage or area where you plan to paint your car is clean and free of dust. It would be wise to mop the floor prior painting a car.

Properly ventilate the area where the DIY is going to be performed. Make sure the workplace is dry. Drying the area is very important otherwise corrosion would take place and your efforts will be in vain.
If you live in deserts, you can paint your car in summer, early in the morning before the sun had a chance to increase the air temperature.

But, avoid painting in direct sunlight. You can create a shaded temporary spray booth with easy up or masking film.

Use recommended thinner
Use the recommended thinner and follow the thinning directions. One quart paint cups make mixing and pouring easier. You can find them at any paint store.
Shake the paint well using car paint shaker.

Use a new paint strainer to pour paint into the car spray gun or solid particles could clog the tip.

Treating Rust
Rust repair isn’t hard but its time consuming. It is essential for the car to have all its rust removed chemically before it is painted because rust causes paint to bubble.

You can also cut the rusted metal and replace the panel entirely. This is because painting the rust surface before removing it will just prolong its life.

Use Lustreless, Satin and Flat paints

The easiest paints to lay down are lustreless, satin and flat paints. These also hide the imperfections in the body and your prep work. Lighter colors hide imperfections better than darker colors if that’s important to you.

Use high quality Body Filler

Use quality Primer

They also create ideal surface for the color coat paint to adhere to. Always choose high build primers and make sure the area you plan to paint is thoroughly cleaned before you start.

Wear a respirator

Practice on a price of scrap material
Practice on a piece of scrap material and play with airflow and paint adjustments on the gun to find what works best for you.
Move the gun side to side and keep practicing.

Hit the hard to reach the crevices first
Round spray pattern works best for tight spots. You may want to increase paint flow to get better finish on wheel wells, frames, suspension parts and axles.

Spray the backside of removed body parts
You can first spray the backside of the removed panels or parts to avoid mess. It is always better to hang the panels so that they can be painted at once.

Use a pressure regulator and water and oil separator

Painting

Whether you are giving your car a fresh new paint colour, or matching the existing paint, you will need a correct shade. Use recommended ratios to mix the paint with thinner and primer.

Each coat will take about 10 minutes to apply per panel and between 20 minutes to an hour between recoating for the paint to cure.
Read paint can’s instructions thoroughly and use the drying time accordingly. Apply three to four coats.

Before applying final coat, remove residue with sandpaper and wipe it down with a clean rag. Repeat it until you get a clear coat lacquer.
