Ive got an E36 in hellrot red and it had to have some welding done on the sills for its MOT. This was right on the edge of the sill and there are some scorch marks and bubbled paint on the side.
Now these arent too bad would obviously look a lot better if I could get rid of them! Im just wondering how would be best to go about doing them? If I was painting an entire panel I'd be fine, but with trying to blend it in I dont really know how to go about it.
Would it be best to sand it down, primer, paint and then laquer over the top like I would a normal panel, and then just use something like G3 to try and blend it as best I can? Or would it be ok just sanding it back lightly and then red straight on the top and then G3?
Or am I way off and something completely different would be better?
Also, where can I get some alright paint from thats not too expensive? I know Halfords do a BMW bright red but just wondering if anywhere does a specific hellrot colour match?
Im not wanting a perfect show room finish, the car was only £500 when I got it and its a cheap run around, just after tidying it up a bit. The area Im wanting to do is right at the bottom of the car as well so isnt the first thing you notice.
Any help with this would be great! Cheers.
