Volkswagen Exterior Body Parts
Volkswagen is the premiere auto industry chief in Germany and third largest, internationally. VW has had three of their vehicle models in the top 10-bestseller list and is still producing them today. They rank third in setting aside the most dollars in the industry to be funded toward researching and developing new technologies. They also have a hefty line with high quality products, and more specifically, with their exterior and body parts and components. A professional usually does your Volkswagen’s exterior auto bodywork, but there are some easy procedures that you can do from home with some basic tools. Exterior and bodywork can be wearying, but it must be done properly in order to get the look you need. Below we will highlight some helpful procedures to help fix up your Volkswagen to get it looking new again. First, fix up any noticeable damage by drilling several holes inside your VW’s dents. Put in the tip of your dent puller into one hole at a time and then yank the dent out carefully. Make sure to alternate between the holes to get finest results. When your dent has been pulled out and smooth, use a grinder to work all of the paint and primer out of this area. Break up the bare metal in this area and around the edges of your dent. Put in some body filler on the whole area with a plastic squeegee and let the filler set for around an hour. Next, use a dual-action sander with 80-grit paper to sand the filler into your Volkswagen‘s exterior. Then, change over to 120-grit sandpaper smooth out the whole you are about to repaint. Yes, you can do the sanding and smoothing by hand, but using a sander will save you a lot of time.

Once the surface area of your Volkswagen has been sanded smooth, tape over any surfaces of the vehicle that are not to be painted, like your windows, wheels, trim, lights, and grille. Spray on two coats of primer and let it dry for around half an hour, then use a block sander with 120-grit paper to smooth out the area you just primed. Sand the block flat with the area of your Volkswagen so the paper flattens the primer and takes away the top layer. This will result in the primer becoming lighter in color. If you still se some darker surfaces on your VW this means you should add a little more body filler. Grind these surfaces down and add more body filler, then sand and prime just like you did before. Lastly, spray the last coat of primer and sand it with 300-grit paper.
