How to Make a Rattle Can Paint Job Actually Look Professional

Sometimes, when it comes to fixing a car, there are a variety of considerations to make. This is especially true when it comes to something that can get rather expensive like bodywork. Being able to properly repair the body of a car is a very time-consuming process. Those that do it well are able to charge an abundance of money for their services.

Let’s just say, for example, that a car gets into a little bit of an accident and needs a new fender. From there, the owner can’t find a fender that exactly matches the color of the car. However, this owner still wants the car to look halfway decent. They don’t want to drive around with a body panel that doesn’t match the car. On the other hand, though, filing an insurance claim will likely make rates go up. Getting a professional to do it could cost hundreds of dollars if not more.

In this situation, there is a sort of middle ground that might require a little bit of elbow grease. However, with a little bit of patience and a smooth hand, DIY paintwork can actually come out looking pretty decent. Now, it likely won’t be 100% up to the standard of a manufacturer or a show car anything like that. However, it could provide a passable look to most people probably wouldn’t even notice!

This time, thanks to the Paint Society YouTube channel, we get to tune in with just that phenomenon. In this one, they show us how to lay down a rattle can paint job to make it look good.
