Hey, it’s Tony. Thanks for watching the video and checking out the blog. Today, we’ll talk about spraying a filler primer over a BMW body kit.

In the video, you can see I’ve prepared mostly everything. All the panels are tacked down and ready to roll.

We have our gun and our filter in it. You always want to filter everything you do. We also have our jar to mix. Remember, your hands are going to be sticky sometimes.

And, we can put back our tack rag and use it when we’re doing our base coat clear coat. We’ll use an area on it that wasn’t used. You can probably do a whole car between your base coat stages before you throw it out.

Watch the video as I show you how to mix it in the jar. I half-filled it with primer (or probably a little less), a quarter of our hardener and we can add some reducer if it looks a little bit too thick.

Make sure to strain everything before you put it in your paint gun. Then, watch the video as I show you how to lay the first coat of paint.

It shouldn’t be too much because you want it to flow on thick and heavy. And, if you spray a thick primer at too much of a high psi, it’s going to come out dry since it will come out so quick.

Please take note of how I spray, how my wrist flows and how I get on to certain areas. I’ll do the front and back kit two to three times.

If you look on to the top left part of the bumper cover where the light goes, you can see a little dry area. That’s the bondo sucking up the primer. You’re going to see these spots all over when you start painting.

It’s good that you notice these spots because you know where the bondo is sucking up the primer so you can cover it.

Here’s a sneak peak of the finished product. This is how it’s going to look once it’s done. When it dries, it should look pretty much like a matte color.

All the imperfections that you see here, like the dust and orange peel, will be sanded out flat. This is our first coat. We’re going to do another coat then we’ll clean our spray gun.

When you clean your gun, just throw some lacquer thinner in it immediately after you paint then mix it up.

You have to repeat the process about two to three times. Then, take cup off, as well as the nozzle tip, and needle then soak it in the little bucket. Soak it for a little while.

Make sure you clean it out really well then put it back together. You don’t have to worry because soaking will not hurt any of the seals.
