1. Prepare car for painting, including cleaning the areas to be painted.
2. Apply primer.
3. Apply water-based, environmentally friendly basecoat paint.
4. Apply clear top coat.
We use water-based, environmentally friendly paint for the basecoat. Water-based paints are just as good as solvent-borne paint, but do not release as many Volatile Organic Compouds (VOCs) into the air. Additional benefits may include fewer coats of paint, a faster paint job, and easier mixing. While some solvent is still used in waterborne paints, the amount is significantly less than in traditional car paints. (Note that on automobiles, the clear top-coat and the primer are not yet water-based.)
