    What is the paint code

  • Marc Sorensen
    Marc Sorensen

    How can you paint in that filth? God damn! Stop using spray primer!! That is your issue. Use a 2k sealer..spray primer is not catalyzed and will react with the solvents in the basecoats. There ya go.

  • Gabriel Palma
    Gabriel Palma

    The paint is attacking the primer coat underneath, maybe to heavy of a base or not the proper flash time or the primer coat maybe to thin and yes grease and wax remover before paint.

    you should always clean with wax and grease remover or at least wash before you paint. wax and grease remover is also a very good clear coat simulator

    Applying a sealer down before you put on the base coat will eliminate the problems your having. Spraying the base coat on top of primer is making it reactivate and cracks appear.

    And be sure to make each time that you lay paint is continuous and one pass no making a pass to the left then to the right and then going in other angles n stuff within the same pass. Go one way each pass so on the bed start painting before the bed heading right or left direction only with each pass and be sure to stop painting AFTER you sprayed to after the end of the part and not at the end of the part it leaves splatter and drips and leaves too much paint doing it how you were. Not trying to be a smart a$$ just trying to help you bc that's why your a DYI person to learn.

  • Clyde Johnson
    Clyde Johnson

    Pull the trigger right before painting your parts and release trigger once your paint is done spraying on the part. Do not start painting ON THE PART YOU START PAINTING B4 AND RELEASE TRIGGER TO STOP SPRAYING AFTER THE PART GETS SPRAYED.

  • dhelms4382

    Dude, I like watching your videos but you need to leave the painting to someone that knows what they’re doing. That was hard to

    • dhelms4382

      Just got to the end of the video. Didn’t realize it was your first time painting. Not too bad for a first time. Just remember, prep is everything! No shortcuts!


      Never gonna learn if you don’t try! Lol!

    It’s the old paint at the bottom that is drying out because the new chemicals is shrink it and cracking it. Solution is to seal it .....use 2k sealer or any kinda sealer to prevent it from happen to me on my 88 Chevy don’t use primer it does not seal anything

  • thunder57

  • gol10dr45

    I don't understand how you got dust on your clear.. I mean your floor is filthy. Lol


    You have to spray everything at once with tri coats bro. The cab will never match the bed I bet money on it.

    • Frosty

      He didn’t spray a tri coat dude. It’s just base clear.

  • Chuy

    Half the video was him sanding and repainting the same spot😂props man I would've been heated

  • Darren Kokoski
    Darren Kokoski

    Ryan, I'm thinking that the cab should go so much easier for you... just think of all you learned of what not to do, and how you adjusted to do it right, just transfer all that knowledge to the cab, I bet you hit it all right the first time through, unless you come across unforeseen issues, but I bet the cab will go alot faster.....

    Ryan, you did a hell of a nice job on this, especially for your first full paint job. But, the most amazing part is the purple color - Shazam! Man, that looks good! It is about 1000% better than the slime snot green on the other cars. Finally a really good looking truck... 😏🏆

  • GoldsGymFitchburg

    Fuck the haters on here brother. Your out there killing it. The fact that you jump in and do it is badass. Keep up the good work. Love the vids my friend.

    Wow I’m actually impressed, I honestly didn’t think it would come out that good. Good job for your first time. Maybe invest in a exhaust fan for your window before you paint your cab.

    When I painted the badges in my truck, one badges I was having major issues with the paint wrinkling like that. I kept forgetting to wash the badge, after I washed with (with dawn dish soap) the issue was gone. There might be some grease or oil from skin on the panel making it wrinkle like that

  • Iron Addicts Nation

    Also please don’t use green as the accent color. Chrome/silver or black is the way to go!

  • Iron Addicts Nation
    Iron Addicts Nation

    It looks amazing! Just so you know flash times are going to be longer than expected because of temperature. Likely why you ran into issues when applying more coats.

  • XanMan1980

    If these videos have taught me one thing, it’s that I’ll NEVER attempt body work or paint. I’ll stick to bolting on suspension, and bolting together engines 😂

    a whole gallon on the bed... I feel bad for the checking account.

  • TNoutdoors

    Man listen to your subscribers. Wax and grease remove before you paint. Even the oil from your hands can cause the paint to not adhere properly. Simple things like this could save you so much time and effort.

  • Eric Strickland

  • toolmandcb2

    When you panned around while working on that problem corner.... I noticed your shelf full of detailing stuff.... anything nearby with silicone in it can cause those problems.....airborne silicone is a painter's nightmare.
