Years ago CollisionBlast.com started of as a simple website, but as more viewers started visiting the site, then it required me to update and buy more and better hosting options. Also with hackers out there trying to crash websites and other technical issues, it costs to have added security and to hire web developers to repair problems that come up. I do use some ads and affiliate links to monetize the website, but I've realized that does not generate much revenue and does not come close to covering the costs of this website.
If you become a plus premium member, then this will allow me to invest more time and money into the membership area. I am only asking you for $9.99 per month. The more members we have and other avenues of revenue generated on this website will allow me do much more and provide you with more and better training for you than ever before. Help me be your number #1 Auto Body and Paint coach.
Note: If you are a collision repair instructor or student, then please visit my contact page and let me know so I can waive the fee for you. Your email address must end in .edu to be allowed free access.

Basic Auto Body and Paint Training
Collision Blast Basic Auto Body and Paint Training Access
Lesson 1, you will be introduced to safety. Taking proper safety measures is a habit you must instill into your mind and at work. Take the time to create productive and safe work habits.
Lesson 2, you will learn a little about how cars have evolved through the years. We have came a long way in vehicle design and how this is making it safer for then the early cars.
Lesson 3, you will learn what a repair plan is for auto body and paint. How this will eliminate many of the problems that arise during the repair process. and how this will save you time and money in the long run.
Lesson 4, we are going to cover metal straightening. There are different types of steel such as mild steel, high strength steel, ultra high strength steel, boron, etc. However, this lesson is going to focus on mild steel, as mild steel is used on many of the body parts. If you restore older cars, probably all the steel that you work with will be mild steel. Many of the other types of steels are used on structural parts and on some of the newer car designs.
Lesson 5, you will learn about the different types of fillers, "body filler, fiberglass filler, glaze, etc." We are also going to cover the uses of these fillers, application,, and sanding techniques.
Lesson 6, you will learn about basic automotive welding, the types of welds used, and the PPE needed to keep you safe.
Lesson 7 we are going to cover why plastics started being used on cars, the two types of plastic, and repair methods to repair plastic.
Lesson 8 we are going to cover how to properly prep a car. This is where much of the hard work is at, but perhaps the most important steps of producing a professional quality paint job.
Lesson 9, you will teach you the basics for adjusting and maintaining a spray gun. You will learn tips and techniques to adjust and use a spray gun so you can achieve a professional quality paint finish.
Lesson 10, I am not going to spend time on the history of paint, as there is not much of it around. The first car I painted was with lacquer and the second was acrylic enamel. It was not long into my career that the industry changed to the base coat/clear coat urethane systems, which are much better and easier to use in my opinion. The industry is currently making another transition to waterborne base coats; however, we’re going to stick to the solvents in this lesson.
Lesson 11, you will learn how to wash, detail, fix runs, buff and polish. Detailing cars in a body shop is a little different than other places because of the silicones in many of the products. You will also learn about silicone free products safe to use in a body shop environment.
Lesson 12, you will learn about some of the most common paint defects and how to repair them. Some defects happen with age, such as rust, peeling, cracking. While others happen during the painting process, such as dirt in paint, runs, excessive orange peel.

I also decided to take it a step further and respond to several of the questions with a video response. There is no way to create videos for all of them, but below you will find a playlist of the questions I have answered with video.
