The door was scuffed with a grey scotch pad and sanding paste. After being masked the first coat applied was a urethane 2 part sealer to the fender. It provides a proper foundation for the paint, the black coating is not sufficient. Without this primer/sealer the paint would stone chip and be very brittle.
Next an orientation coat is applied to the blend door to provide an optimal surface for color blending. This fills in the small scratches. Next three coats of base are applied medium wet blending out a bit further with each coat. Once the base is dry 2 coats of urethane clear are applied wet.
