Hi,i just watched the you-tube video,his end result was very nice,his technique ,i didnt like at all.for a new painter to watch that,and then try to paint that way,would be a disaster.

That was shot in the UK where clear coat has always been referred to as lacquer and lacquer is what we call cellulose.
He overlaps more than I'd be comfortable with and he gets a lot more overspray so I guess uses more material too

I can't find where to add or edit signature...durn.

This guy has great technique and trigger control.
That's the biggest trick--- Trigger control.
Had many people want to watch me, and they always come outta the booth sayin the same thing.
"Don't believe how hard it is, always thought ya just pulled the trigger and put the paint on."
That's the differance between a "Painter" and an "applier"
Anybody can apply paint !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think knowing the camera is on him is exaggerating things a bit but they say to spray waterborne like that..same with the Envirobase clear where you build mils rather than coats.
,,. nice booth too

|Lizer||I epoxied the underside of my hood, my roof, and my hoodscoop today and I think my spraying was worse today only because I watched that video. I think I was subconciously trying to do some of that stuff and I was getting a pretty dry coat. I need to stick to how I learned and how I've always done it, that suits me best.|

I watched the video twice. If I used that technique I'd have runs everywhere. Notice he's in a professional quality paint booth, there is no fogging at all.
I don't understand why the door wasn't masked off when he shot the quarter panel.

Wow. After watching that I am not sure whether my finished job would look like 120 grit sand paper or Niagara Falls. He obviously knows what he is doing but I don't think I will be trying to copy him. After watching it, I agree with Brian. He is feathering the trigger as he goes to control the amount of paint but still..... It would appear he would end up with dry over spray or so much paint on the panel it would run off in sheets. This is probably the difference between someone who paints a car every two years and someone who paints 2 a day.

|Lizer||I also like how near the end he's spraying with his mask up and then is like, 'I should probably put this back down.'|

I too was confused about the lacquer reference, but seeing as it is a European video (look at the license plate on the vehicle being painted), I assumed 'lacquer' is synonymous for 'clear coat' there.
So basically, Brian, it sounds like you're saying I stick to the way I learned and was taught.

The one thing I don't understand about the whole video is the "Lacquer" reference? This looks like standard old solvent basecoat/clearcoat urethane and they refer to the clear as a "lacquer", huh? Maybe it's a regional thing where clear is called "lacquer" or something.
Anyway, about this spray technique, the most important thing to understand about how he is spraying and pulling off no running stuff all over the floor is trigger technique. He is going off and on a LOT he is probably going partial on and not full on trigger on many of those in and out motions on that bumper. That along with a properly set up gun for his style and he pulls off a perfectly covered, paint film. Many who would try his method would end up with WAY too much material because they aren't triggering it properly and the gun could be set up with too much material transfer. He has it choked back a bit, that and the triggering keeps him from applying as much material as it looks like he is.

I'm going to have to watch this video more closely now. I didn't pick up on him going the opposite direction of the first coat, though I know that's something you're supposed to do.
