Before painting car.....Textured coating


Recommended Posts

Hello I am almost done with the bondo work and along the bottom side of the car there is a textured coating. Like under the bumper and around the whole length of the car. I took some off and there is metal there. Should I just take it all of with a wire brush or leave it. Also before painting should i clean the tire wells cause they have accumulated a lot of dirt. Suggestions??????

but - it a stone chip resistant layer.(stone gaurd)

It's a soft, non-chip layer resistant to stone and sand wear.

Remove it and your paint will chip quickly.

You could remove it to bare metal, then prime,

and reapply the stone barrier, and then your finish

color coat on that to duplicate the original factory layers

It has a pebbly texture, on the lower front valance, and behind

the rear wheels as seen here>

Exactly but mine has it all around. In the back and on the sides(Where the rocker trim molding goes) it has peeled off at places and would look stupid if I just painted over it. Thanks so im probably gonna take it off completely. The front is still good. Do you think I should leave the front off or take it all off? Thanks for suggestions.

Body undercoatings require guns specifically made for the application--only body shops will have that sort of equipment. I imagine the Wurth gun is about $100 by now.

BMW two-stage paint began with the '74 model (which had/has a terrible reputation for failure of the clear coat).

I actually sprayed the textured material, or better said, had sprayed, around the edges of the wheel wells. That material is sort of self healing and this area seems to get a lot of rock chips.

Wurth SKS Stoneguard black or grey is the proper stuff.... set the flow for different textures.
