Not to cause offence, but what DEEJAY225 describes would suffice if the job involved repainting the entire door (and I believe that's what his method would no doubt lead to) - I am a S.M.A.R.T. repairer, and know that the secret of a successful smart repair is to minimise the repair area - not extend it - why degrease the entire door just to touch-in a 2" square area which is on the top of the door frame above the window??? I agree with the spraying technique (which is well-explained), however. I still maintain that unless the existing lacquer is completely contaminated with dirt, then it is possible to save it, and again, it will only cost a little time to verify that...

I would charge no more than 50 for that type of job compare that with a bodyshop.

Merry Christmas to one and all.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
