    • Paint drips can be removed by gently dabbing them with a dry paper towel.

    • Allow to dry.

    • Drying time takes at least 10 minutes per coat of paint.

    • Continue adding coats and drying in between until primer cannot be seen through the paint.

    • Spray on the clear protective coat. Use small strokes and spray the clear coat around the area.

    • Allow to dry for 10 minutes or until the area feels dry when touched.

    • Add at least 3 more coats, allowing each coat to dry in between.

    • The clear coat helps prevent rust and adds a refective texture that helps the paint job blend in.

    • Remove masking tape from the car when finished.

    • If you accidentally got paint on your windows, it will come off if you scratch it with a flat razor.
