Paint touch-up tips
Once you’ve got ahold of your new paint, it’s time to get to work! Here are some tips to make the touch-up process go more smoothly:
- Before you start, wash the damaged area with soap and water
- If the area is rusty, use fine sandpaper or a wire brush to wear the rust away
- Apply primer to any bare metal or plastic you want to paint and allow it to dry overnight. Once the area is dry, sand it gently to create an even surface.
- Paint the area with the color matching the rest of the car. Apply several coats, and wait 20 minutes between coats. Let the final layer dry overnight.
- Add a clear protective coat using the same method as painting. Apply several layers, and allow to dry overnight.
- After three days, buff the area with a rubbing compound to make it shine!
Ta-da! Your Suzuki should now be as blemish-free as the day you bought it, and now you have the skills to handle future cosmetic damage head-on.
