A large scratch now ruins your car’s previously beautiful paint job because you pulled into the driveway too close to that hedge. This means that you must make financial and time savings to solve the issue. You will undoubtedly sustain a scratch or two when driving, no matter how carefully you are. So it makes sense to spend money on a ceramic coating. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t get into this work if you are inexperienced. You may learn how to properly paint a ceramic coating on your car by following the steps in this article.
Step 1: Prepare Your Car
Always start by giving a car’s exterior a good hand wash with foaming auto shampoo, rinsing it off, and then wiping it off with a microfiber towel.
The first step in preparing a blank canvas for your nano ceramic coating is to remove any surface muck, dirt, and debris that may be collected there. Don’t forget that you’re adding a temporary layer of protection to your car, so scrub that ride well unless you enjoy the sight of enlarged bug guts embedded on your hood. By using the two buckets and a beer approach to wash the car, you can prevent cross-contamination and ensure that there will always be plenty of refreshments.
Once all the contaminants that can be seen have been eliminated, it is time to remove the profoundly entrenched debris and unseen pollutants. To clay a car, three things are necessary:
- A lubricant liquid,
- Clay decontamination product
- Clean water.
The latter is readily available for purchase or can be made with only a little water and even some surface prep shampoo.
Regarding the claying medium, we advise switching to a clay towel or mitt instead of the conventional clay bar. The difference between these two items and a clay bar is that these two items can be washed and reused after being dropped on the ground.
Step 2: Paint Correct & Polish
Surface protection, shine enhancement, and amplification are the main functions of nano-ceramic coatings; they do not hide faults. After applying a ceramic coating, unsightly surface flaws become more noticeable. Therefore, it can be necessary to carry out surface restoration procedures such as buffing away paint peel, removing scratches, correcting fade, and erasing swirl marks.
A paint correction technique could seem scary, yet it’s not quite as challenging as one might imagine. Owning a garage, getting the proper bodywork equipment and materials, blocking off enough time, and having a little patience and experience are all necessary for carrying out a DIY paint correction method.
Step 3: Put The Nano Ceramic Coating In Place
Once you’ve finished all the preparation, either start ceramic coating the car or store it carefully in a garage far from moisture, airborne contaminants, curious cats, and kids with hatchets. It’s crucial to make sure that all the areas you intend to ceramic coat are as near to room temperature as possible before you start the coating process. Typically ceramic coatings work best when applied to clean surfaces at temperatures around 70° Fahrenheit and in environments with moderate humidity.
