    Default DIY: Painting my Nissan Patrol

    Hello my 4x4 brothers.

    Some of you may know how I've been working on my so called secret project at home....well, here it is!
    A few weeks ago, I was debating over whether to paint my NP or not. Sure enough, when you have friends with as big 'keerdhaas' as yourself, you end up doing things you never thought you would. So yes, my friend Irfan and I got the idea to paint my Nissan Patrol at home. I figured I could learn a new skill and do the kind of job that I would be most satisfied with as opposed to being at the mercy or denters and painters who would charge an arm n leg for the job. Although, I must point out that saving money was not the priority here, it was more about satisfying the 'shaukeen pagal wala bug' that most of us insane car enthusiasts have here on this forum
    Here is the story of how all this happened and where we have reached so far....enjoy the pics and do contribute to the thread.

    Hassan bhai, this is one unique thing which u did. BRAVO. I think i have never heard of someone painting his veh by himself. And this needs a big heart. I am sure with this approach u have proved to be a genuine/ janooni/ pagal type lover of yr veh and that's what really matters.

    Thanks for your comments. I was using the air from the spray gun to blow away dust and debris from sanding the surface.

    Levin so far we have spent about Rs.15,000 on materials. That includes paint, thinner, lacquer, sandpapers, polish, compound and rags.
    The compressor and spray gun were borrowed so no cost for that. I still have 2 coats of paint and lacquer to go so in the end it might come to about Rs.20,000 including the final rubbing and polish.
    Your starlet shouldn't cost as much as far as materials are concerned because of the size difference. I'm guessing you can do it much less cost than mine. Your surface area is much less so shouldnt be too expensive.

    Ideally as I mentioned earlier, its all about the pressure that the compressor produces. If you're getting a pressure of above 70-80psi, you're good to go. Also make sure the spray gun is the right gauge. I would advise a 12/14 gauge. In addition it is extremely important to make sure the gun is clean before you start. Run the spray gun with ONLY thinner first, then proceed with the paint. This will clean the gun and not create blobs when you paint.

    Default Decisions! Decisions!

    So after much thought and deliberation....the added expense to get the denting done was made. This of course meant that the painting process had to be done again, which is fine since 2 more coats had to be done anyway.

    Ideally the denting should have been done first, but such is the case when it comes to being overly excited. The paint job was coming out well, so I thought why waste the effort of paint and might as well get the denting done too so that the final outcome is good. Lesson learnt!

    Luckily the denting cost only came to about Rs.5000 and 2 days of work. Here are the pics...
    This sets my time table back a bit but I intend on finishing this whole process by Saturday Inshallah.

    Yes there are small dents that need to be fixed, i was quoted 25,000 total cost, dent , paint complete body work . work done in 12 days approx and probably another 10,000 for hollow alloys.

    I am just hesitating because local traffic is so bad, others put door dings from carelessness, and in past i just had concentrated on car's mechanical repair work only.

    the right decision!
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"
