Hi

I have a very, very shallow area exposing primer (sealer)  in the middle of the door. It is about 1/2 x 1/2
inch big.  I consider to apply very thiny layers of basecaot and clearcoat using fine air brush from a
hobby shop.  It is a mettalic color and I guess I can not do perfect job here without blending. However,
I do not want to touch bigger area and I would like to just cover the exposed primer area. Any other idea
here what can I do with such a shallow painting? I consider to order paint and laquer thinner from
your shop. Is there any significant difference to use DuPont basemaker as a thinner considering
such a small job?


Thanks

I have realized that I need to thin the paint. Paintscratch says they use ChromaBase paints. So, I was rather concerned if there is any significant  difference in using the automotive lacquer thinner they sell in comparison to the DuPont basemaker thinner. I might be not clear here, I apologize ....

Well there are different types of paints...you would need to be clear with them as to what kind they are selling you.  If it is 2 stage Urethane (ChromaBase) then you must use BaseMaker.  If it is Lacquer paint (Lucite) then you have to use the Lacquer thinner.

The paint we sell is DuPont ChromaBase paint and not lacquer paint as suggested by CPaintCars. This is clearly stated on our website. Lacquer based paint is old technology and the ChromaBase holds up much better.  You can thin ChromaBase with lacquer thinner or basemaker. Basemakers are really designed for professional painters who can choose from a variety of basemakers depending on the temperature range they are painting. For the dyi, automotive lacquer thinner can be used with excellent results.

Urethane paints should ONLY be used by professionals using approved spray equipment, fresh air respirators and a paint booth. These are very toxic paints and can cause permanent damage to you! We do not sell these paints.

Thanks a lot, it clarifies the things to me ..... but one more quastion ....
Will the lacquer thinner you sell react in any way with the original car painting and  clearcoat which I guess is urethane based ....my car is 2004 Honda CR-V model.  I mean, can I remove your paint with lacquer thinner if I am not
happy with my job and repaint .... but without doing more demage on the original (surrounding the scratch) paint. 

Thanks

No, the thinner will not react at all to your existing paint. If you apply our paint and it is not looking good, use the thinner to take it off. If you have any doubts, just test your finish first, for example, try a little thinner down very low or in the door jambs. You will see it doesn't react. However, it will take any new paint applied right off (up to 30 days).

If you are spraying the paint, removing the paint with lacquer thinner could get pretty messy!
