2Cutting out the components

The individual parts are cut out (see also the dimensional sketch attached) using a jigsaw. To start with, drill an approximately 20 mm hole touching the edge of the outer panel.

2SAND THE GARAGE DOOR

You first need to sand down the old paint. Using an random orbital or sheet sander is the quickest way to do this. You can then remove any paint from grooves by hand using 120 grade sandpaper.

3CLEANING THE SURFACE

For the perfect paint application, the surface must be dry and free from grease or dust. Coarse dust can be removed with a brush and fine dust can be removed with a micro-fibre cloth.

4MASKING

Carefully mask off all of the surfaces that you are not going to spray. The easiest way to do this is to use masking tape combined with paper or a polythene dust sheet. For handles and other small parts, regular masking tape is ideal.

5PREPARING THE SPRAYER

The sprayer is ready for use in just a few steps. Pour paint into the paint container until it is 3/4 full and dilute the material in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, or depending on the spray pattern you are aiming for. To do this, use the included stirrer, each notch corresponding to a 10% dilution.The suction pipe can be aligned depending on how you are going to work.When spraying downwards, turn the suction tube forwards. When spraying objects overhead, turn the suction tube back. The spray jet can also be adjusted three ways - horizontally, vertically and detailed. Carry out a test spray to find the right settings for you.

6THE SPRAYING PROCESS

Start with the outer edges of the garage door and always change the direction of spray when the jet is past the edge of the garage doors. This avoids thicker layers of paint being applied when you change direction. Maintain a constant distance from the doors. Tip: Since paint applied too thickly can cause drips, it is better to spray two thin coats than one thick coat. After spraying, allow the paint to dry in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

7CLEANING

Clean the spray attachment thoroughly with water or solvent after use.
