This shows a minor scrape on a Mazda Miata. The scratch was feathered out,
primed and painted using BASF paint. There are many ways to get the job
done, this is what was done here:
1. The scratch was feathered out using 280 grit paper until each color was
seperated around 1/2".
2. Next it was backsanded to allow space for the primer to adhere.
3. It was primed with 2 coats of Glasurit 285-10/20 direct to metal
urethane primer and allowed to dry. It was primed with a devilbiss
finishline HVLP gun with a 1.6 tip.
4. Next it was blocksanded using 320 paper, then final sanded with some
400-500 grit paper. Using a block is optional there but recommended.
5. After taping it up it was painted using RM Diamont basecoat in 3 coats.
Each coat was allowed to flash about 5 minutes before the next one. Then 15
minutes before clearing. An Iwata LPH400 was used to apply the basecoat at
about 20 psi.
6. The clear coat used here was BASF DC5335 Glamour clear. It was applied
in 2 coats with about 10 minutes between coats. It was applied using an
Iwata W400 with about 26 PSI at the gauge.
A few dirt nibs were colorsanded and polished afterwards.
Smart As Paint How to repair a scratched
This video will show most of the processes I use in a 'SMART' (Small to
Medium Area Repair Techniques) repair. Using the newly introduced water
based paint systems. This one shows a bumper, but it is a similar process
anywhere on the car. You will however, find repairing horizontal surfaces
i.e. roof, boot and bonnet can be more difficult to 'fade out' .If there is
an aspect I have left out, or I have not made clear in the time available,
drop us a line and I will try to help. If you are in the Brighton area of
the UK, I may be able to do it for you at a very reasonable rate.

This is a bumper repair on a Chrysler 300 that has a split in the rear
bumper cover. Shown here is Kent Repair Epoxy adhesive, Evercoat Polyflex
and BASF urethane primer.
To start the bumper is washed to inspect for further damages. There is a
small tear that may not be visible on the video but there is a clear hole
in the cover.
The hole is first tapered out on both sides and reinforced on the back and
front with epoxy. The epoxy is sanded fairly straight with a DA sander but
final blocked with flexible polyester putty. You can simply finish in epoxy
and it would make for a better job, however it sands much tougher.

The Epic Tale, of fixing a car, after some dunce taxi driver hits it.
Fortunately, the bumper, PHYSICALLY, is 100% undamaged! Cosmetically, it
was a total mess.
Before I started this video, I got half the "Darlington Stripes" off if
it, and in this segment, I remove the rest of them. Some scratches remain,
and there's some chipped off paint. Tocuh-up painting is in the next part.
BEFORE SOMEONE SAYS IT:
No, I do NOT have the time, or money, to go though the hassles of insurace
companies, getting it appraised, quoted, and replacing the bumper. The
damage is fairly neglegable, and when it's done, it'll not be perfect, but
will look like other parts of the car.
ALSO: Once all is done, the receipts for the materials will be sent to
the cab company who was responsible. Fortunately, it's not going to be a

A ChipsAway repair - in 4 minutes!
Our customer had scuffed the courtesy car she had on loan from her main
dealer. The excess she would have to pay for returning it unrepaired was
enormous. A bodyshop repair would be not much cheaper - and need the car
for much longer than the couple of days she still had the car on loan for.
ChipsAway Cambridge sorted out a repair in the time available, saving her
hundreds of pounds.

How to Blend Clear Coat (Base / Clear) - Spot Repair
This is a 3 stage pearl white mazda that is having a spot repair performed
on the front bumper cover. It it being sprayed with BASF RM onyx waterborne
paint and RM DC5600 clear coat. The clear coat is blended and polished to
an undetectable transition. This repair will hold out well but ideally the
entire bumper cover should be painted the highest quality job. This was
repaired by blending the clear as the customer requested an economical
repair. The price differs from about $175 this way to about $500 to do the
entire bumper cover. The way a three stage paint works is the first part of
the paint is a solid color sprayed to cover the primer. Once that is done a
pearl coat is sprayed overtop to give it a deep pearl effect. It is all
topped with a clearcoat and the clearcoat is blended using a clearcoat
blender (UBR200). The blender is mixed into some activated clear coat also.
The entire job is polished at the end to remove the slight roughness caused
from the clear tapering out.
