Making an invisible car repair is more than doing a great job. Here is a tip for applying seam sealers.
ABRN How2 – Apply Seam Sealer
You know, one of the hardest things I’ve had when doing bodywork is reproducing factory looks. We know invisible repairs are the objective; performing the repairs so that no one can tell the vehicle has ever been involved in an accident. However, some of the factory looks are hard to reproduce. For example, seam sealer has always been difficult for me when performing autobody repairs. I am sure there’s a lot of tricks that I’m not aware of but Sean Collins with 3M demonstrates a cool trick to to reproduce one of those sprayed texture factory look.
It’s just like painting a panel and color sanding and buffing it. It is easy to make the panel look show room quality. However, that is not going to match the factory appearance. Different manufacturers have different textures with a certain amount of orange peel that we must have in order produce an invisible repair. Therefore, if you have a factory paint job and paint the door, it is not going to match properly.
Anyway, I thought this was a great tip Sean provided for sprayed seam sealers and I thought you would enjoy the video.
