We Repaired the BMW Supercar's Body Damage and Gave it a $1,000 DIY Paint Job

Get a special offer on a Ring Video Doorbell, and start making your home safer today: ring.com/samcrac
Special thanks to Zach: @Ultimate Rebuilds
It's time to repaint the entire BMW i8. This car has definitely had a few accidents, and the cosmetic condition was overall very poor, so we opted to repaint the entire car in BMW's individual Twilight Purple Paint. We saved a lot of money DIYing the job and you can see what a DIY garage paint job looks like for yourself.
I Got most of the supplies necessary for this job at Eastwood: www.eastwood.com/

    Okay... So, I watch videos like this and I see people who KNOW WHAT THE EFF THEY ARE DOING, and think, "That's amazing!" Then I realize they make it look effortless, because they've been doing it for YEARS! Part of me wants to mess around and try even plastidip on vehicles, but the other part of me is like, "Dude, no effin' way" Your car is beautiful and you should be proud of it.

    You've probably been asked this question a 1000 times and I looked to see if you've ever put a video out on it. How do you deal with selling and or insuring a car that has been labeled as a salvage that was "totaled." I know when I used to work for a credit union, we would not finance these cars for people.

    Sam why buff this, the thing looks fine, also its generally not a good idea to put tape on fresh clear or fresh anything for that matter, granted I dont think this is the kinda tape that eats the clear, but the type that they use on packages does FYI like just stuff a towel in there or a rubber matt, and going forward I would probably recommend keeping a binder with all the paint codes and types you've used for each car, as with your project list yeah, your gonna forget a few lol also any update on the ferrari 360?

    Paint is nice, but not perfect - there is a rough edge between purple and black, and some defects are visible. Also, painting in such conditions can't be perfect, dust from painting one part, seats on another freshly painted parts. It is not a big problem when you paint all car at once, but here paint on one part may dry a little, and then is "dusted" with paint from another part. This can be repaired by buffing the surfaces, but won't be a perfect finish.

    Important corners being cut? Like, not having an EPA compliant spray booth (required for businesses) and not using dust-free filtered air in a climate controlled booth, so there's no guessing about thinning and orange peel? You may not need all that, but a business *does* . What happened to your bouncy-house inflatable spray booth?

    I have used the cheap harbor freight purple gun. I can tell you from experience, if you take the time to pull it apart,clean it well, spray about an ounce of solvent to help clean it. Than spend as much time as needed adjusting adjusting gun properly on a test piece. You can get really good results . You are already on MNmore, look up "how to adjust a hvlp". Don't be discouraged if first paint job doesn't turn out so well, study your results and figure out your mistakes. It will get better as you learn. My first paint job made an orange look smooth. Now after using the hvlp for anything that needs painted, I have a lot of practice and can now lay down "glass". Prep work is the most time consuming and the most important part. Don't cut corners on prep. Learned that from experience as well. People aren't lying when they say prep is 90%.
