    Are you sure you used wax and grease remover before that first layer of base?

    If you dont get some ventilation going when you clear it's going to look terrible. All that overspray fog. And yeah definitely need alot better clean down of the panels, WAY more. Wax and grease remover. Get some ventilation going. And clean up the dust and shop a lot better. Get the floor damp, some big wet blankets or towels work really good in a pinch or misted down cardboard on the ground. The SLIGHTEST variations in cleanliness, temperature, mixing it will all show so much more than you would imagine. Tiny little inconsistencies in paint/body work show.

    If you've ever heard the expression measure twice cut once lol. There's so much to body work and paint to make it look acceptable. Tons of research to do. TONS. Great that you're learning. It's not going to be mint what so ever. But you learnt alot. Lots to be said for that.

    What percent tint you have on car and truck looks good in contrast with the green but still light enough to see out

    Wax and grease removal would be a good idea, some ventilation would help, and you can spray clear right over the paint with in 20 mins

  • toolmandcb2

    Always use a good wax and grease remover and allow to dry just before starting to shoot paint. Looking good!! Reverse the paint scheme from other truck and use lime green highlights!!

  • Nunya Biznus

    Your garage door was open allowing a cold draft to alter your drying time in that area. Thinning less and using winter specific thinner helps, but you have to eliminate varied temperatures within your paint area.

    How much did the sanding priming and painting process cost in total or just a rough guess I would like to repaint my truck I’m willing to put in the work if the cost is well worth it.

  • Jordan_5.4

    I knew it would be that color ! Are you going to do like green for an accent color?


    yep just as I thought illusion purple

    Ryan. Buy a cap that goes on a gallon of paint to pour paint then you can close it and not have a mess. Less waste. Home depot or lowes has them.

  • lbhamlo

    Ryan, go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get you a paint can lid with a resealable cap, I use them all the time. Buy a few, use them and when can is empty, you can clean the remaining paint and reuse them, no mess!

    Look Ryan, I've been watching your channel for a while and I have to say I really enjoy it. You make great content. There are always people out there that criticize and others that give advice. When it comes down to it, I admire you. You have balls and just go for it. You let your passion flow with your projects and that inspires me. So thank you. Best wishes to you and your lovely lady for working hard and building the channel and business. Cheers from Arizona.

    I have had the primer not dry enough before if its really hot, cold or humid.

  • vatozone

    Ur reducer reacted with the primer reducer/ activator.when u mix brands ur 1st coat should b just a mist and get thicker as u go to keep ur last layer from saturate

    Need to oil and grease remove the surface before you paint. Not sure if you've done that haven't seen it in any of the painting video. Preperation is key to a great paint job.

    Solvent reaction. Should have decreased everything, alcohol whipped the body, and a little mist of water on you're floor helps with dust. But you are learning looking good Ryan

  • Jason Pikachu
    Jason Pikachu

    A tip from the uk: before sanding the primer, put a really light coat of black paint on top of the primer. Don’t spray it solid black but just specs of black everywhere. Then when you sand it, it is easier to see any high or low spots and any pin holes you may need to fill before paint. Also wash you panels down before paint.

  • Gear Slingers
    Gear Slingers

    The wax and greese remover might emliminate the wrinkle as well

  • Gear Slingers
    Gear Slingers

    The wrinkle /peeling is from the solvents in the paint reacting the the rattle can primer go back it a good automotive 2 part primer. Rattle can primer and some automotive paints just won’t work together and you need to be wipe if the panel down with wax and greese remover before spraying and go over it lightly with a tack cloth before painting to remove dust and stuff from the air settling on to it

  • ID-VWAenthszt

    I had guessed purple, I’m assuming you’re going to use lime green for all of your accent parts. Nice contrast from the Dodge.

    Also next time your painting something UPenn the garage door and put and fan and seal off the rest to get the fumes out and it’ll save you so much time with sanding and you’ll get a better paint job in the end

  • Wade Parker
    Wade Parker

    The reason the paint bubbled like that is because it could have had some residue on it. Did you wax and grease remover the bed before you sprayed it?
