Ամիս առաջ

This is the step by step guide for removing orange peel from your car's paint with my special guest, Jason Rose from Rupes USA. First we use a 1500 grit film disc and then 2000 grit foam backed disc. Afterwards we polished the paint with DA wool and DA Course compound from Rupes, then final polish with Rupes Uno Pure. For protection, we applied AMMO Reflex Pro before driving it back up to Rhode Island to the Audrain Auto Museum. Check out the step by step process for removing orange peel from your paint and decide if its the "right thing to do" on your particular vehicle. Hope this helps you create flat flawless paint in your car's paint! -Larry

Hi Larry. Great video. I was just wondering if this process is safe to remove orange peel on 20+ year old factory Acura paint? I'd love to remove some of the factory imperfections but I also don't want to destroy the paint. Thank you!

My wife's has orange peel all over her ford edge. Does that mean it's been repainted or is it just a trash paint job from the factory.

If I'm not mistaken there is a difference between the k series and p series sandpapers. P series is the stuff you normally find in stores, where k is more specialty. K1500 will cut like p1200 but have the finish of p1500-p2000. K has a more aggressive cut but smoother finish. So be careful if you have thin paint

So are they leveling the clear to make orange peel go away , but what if you have orange peel on the base coat. Im a tech but learning about paint because its very interesting, Im curious because i was painting some interior plastic trim on my car and when the base settled it had orange peel so i leveled it by wet sanding and going to spray again before clearing it . Just wondering if its different with plastics because of its pores . Im guessing the green car had a good base and just the clear showed orange peel for whatever reason ?

I have an ND2 Miata that Mazda had repainted due to hundreds of chips appearing after only 1800 miles. The shop did a great shop with the notorious 46V Soul Red Crystal and left a lot of clear to play with. With that said, I'm sure Mazda left some time constraints as the orange peel is pretty terrible a year on. I'm comfortable polishing, but wet sanding scares the hell out of me. Would it be fair to say this is something I should just live with??

Hey Larry, what about removing orange peel from a non-clear coated paint job?? aka old skool Porsche paint (not necessarily original though, hence the orange peel).

We wet sand cars with 2000 and Icon Rocklear right over top afterwards. Not only do we get rid of orange peel, we add to the clear coat with a rock hard, clear protective coating that is 75 times thicker than ceramic. It also boasts permanent UV and Chemical protection.

soooo had to search to clear up that confusion. when you say 13mil of paint, i've always thought WTF how is paint so thick as 13mils is half an inch. but of course it's American mils so not actual mm it's 0.33mm

What if the orange peel is actually in the colour layer? Then it must go back to the factory? Surely

I can really appreciate your tutorial on this job. I'm still nervous about doing my 2008 'Vette Velocity Yellow Tintcoat. I've had the car for years, kept it in the garage, and have never done a detailing. Three plus years ago, I made the mistake of parking overnight out of town near a maple tree in the Spring and got some nasty gum on it. Plus, I never cleaned it off properly. So, there are some steps I'll have to take first to get the tree residue off before I can start such a project. But, I also don't want to really spend $1,000+ getting a "professional" to do it since not all detailers are created equal. I know that doing a good job and doing "too much" is a fine line. And, staying away from sharp edges must be at the forefront. I'll probably continue to procrastinate.

Me - *has repainted and wet-sanded many cars* Also me - *Shutters at the thought of someone wet-sanding a car painted by someone else* You never know how thick the clear coat is. The clear coat to metal depth might be OK, but a re-spray or multiple re-sprays will give a false "safe" reading. Be careful wet-sanding your own car if it has been repainted. The clear and base coat might be thinner than you would like.

So if the paint goes on the car and then is covered with clear coat, which is actually causing the orange peel? At times you spoke of removing paint and other times you spoke of removing clear coat.

Wow 20 to 30 mils just means it has quite a bit of paint between bare metal and the surface, car could have been painted once or twice over original paint It does not mean there is paint to work with or lots of clear to sand down, the clear could be literally 1 or 2 mils thick

Too bad for me that you didn’t make this video sooner. I don’t much get scared to try new things, a lot of folks end up never doing most things they’d like to do, cause they are too scared to jump in. Well, I jumped in and run my sand up to the edges being very careful, at least that’s what I thought. I burned through the clear on a couple spots at the edges of my hood. It’s not super noticeable to the Average person but I can see it from a mile away. Poop. I didn’t burn through the color later, so I was thinking I’d try kind of a nail polish application of some clear then try and blend it just enough to kinda hide my spots.

You do not want to do this to a OEM paint job. The orange peel in factory paint is there to provide longevity and integrity of the paint. Well done video as usual Larry. That being said no IPA before applying protection?

Mill thickness gauge measures the entire paint build, not he clear coat thickness. Got to keep that in mind. It’s also a good practice to tape all edges (burnt many an edge) when buffing. Great video love them.

Larry were yous only levelling the lacquer if you were to level the base coat would the clear not need removed first? To level the paint as the lacquer is only to add the shine and protection.

when you have an old car that’s been resprayed , don’t you think the paint depth gauge could be somewhat misleading considering how it could have body filler, or if the car wasn’t stripped it could have half as much cushion than actually measured?

When you measure the depth of the paint how do you know how much is clearcoat and how much is paint? It's no use if 99% of the depth is paint and you then go through the clear.. there's no coming back from that.. I'm thinking maybe this car was painted so long ago it didn't have clear

So you have 23mil so ok to sand. But you sanding the clear coat and not likely the paint. So it’s still not a good idea unless you know how much clear you have this is just creating an issue down the road.
