Before You Start:
Before to start spray paint, find a place with excellent ventilation, dust-free environment and most importantly enough room to work around the vehicle that you are going to paint. Place a drop cloth to protect the floor from overspray.
Step 1: Preparation
After finding the place now is the time to prepare your vehicle for spray paint. First of all, clean the surface of the hood using water and soap and let it dry thoroughly. Once dry, mask off the area around the centre portion of your hood using painter’s tape and masking paper to protect it from possible overspray. Also, keep in mind to wear gloves and a mask while spray painting, especially if you’re spraying in a confined space like a garage.
Step 2: Spray Paint the Surface
Once done with general preparation, you can spray paint your vehicle. First, read the instruction carefully. And now, shake the aerosol-cane of Rust-Oleum Peel Coat vigorously for a minute until the mixing ball begins to rattle. If mixing ball fails to rattle, “Do not strike spray-can and contact Rust-Oleum.” Next, hold the spray-cane 8-12” away from the surface and spray first light coat in a consistent sweeping motion. Apply four or more additional coats, with the gap of 10 minutes between each coat. The more coats you apply, the easier it will be to peel them later.
Step 3: Finish
For clean lines, you need to remove the painter’s tape and masking paper from the hood, immediately after finishing your last coat. Then, let the painted surface dry completely or for at least two hours before taking it out for a spin.
Step 4: Remove
The best thing about this spray paint that it can be removed easily whenever you want. To remove, slowly rub one edge of the paint until it starts to peel up. Also, you should expect the coating to peel off in large pieces. Well, for simple and easy removal, it is recommended peeling your tail-lights within six months of application.
