    Spraying Cars DIY? How to go about it?

    Hi,

    Basically the Coupe has some war wounds... quite a few at that, was priced up to have the job done at £1400, is it possible to do the car myself, what would I need? Or does the car have to actually be baked.... Have sprayed up bumpers etc in the past, I have a compressor and spray gun etc

    Sorry if this is a completely pathetic question

    Many thanks!

    Rick

    Clean dust free environment, compressor and attachments, a selection of prep materials, paint and alot of patience. It also helps to have an oven or a collection of oil fires to bake the lot when done. To do a good job it takes alot of practice. If your only doing the car and not going to spray anything else get a garage to do it, and get some more quotes
