Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Well if you guys remember back in the june/july time frame of 2013, I made a short thread on what had happened to my air dam. And so to revisit it with a how to write up, i'll start with a background story on it.

I can't remember the exact date it happened, but I was driving down to the mall on I-24, going towards Nashville. Well shortly after getting on the highway, maybe 15 mins south of fort Campbell, I gotten a strange wiggle from the front end, it was real brief, maybe like 10-20 seconds or so. it developed into what felt like a parachute on the nose and then suddenly nothing. the truck felt normal. I looked into my rear view mirror and I see a big black thing in the air behind the truck. (later I discovered it to be my airdam) luckily it landed in the median. Heres the pics from the damage;





so now onto the write up itself!

I ordered all parts from rockauto.com

The bumper cover: $36.79
The airdam: $66.79
The airdam support: $41.79

Shipping was 153 and some change. I was in the field when the parts got delivered.

Good surface prep is a must for the paint to adhere properly, I used prep wipes for this but any real good ALCOHOL BASED cleaner will work or rubbing alcohol works too. this is to have the cleanest surface possible.



Then I sprayed an adhesion promoter. this is used to allow your base primer coat to stick better on the plastic surface. you spray it with sweeping motions with about .5-1inch of overlap. applying a LIGHT COATING. let dry for 5 to 10 mins.


Then I applied the primer coat, this is done like the adhesion promoter, using light coats to get a even coat across the bumper. again, sweeping motions with the can held about 8 to 10 inches above the work piece.




Let the primer dry to a light tack or about 25-30 mins between coats. use up to 3 coats or until fully covered. After you lay the primer coat, I recommend wet sanding with a 800 grit sandpaper. this will give a smoother surface to lay your base coat. be carefull not to sand too much or you will need to respray the primer, also sand only after the primer is FULLY DRIED.



Let the primer completely dry before you apply the base coat of paint. Using the same spray technique as from the earlier steps, apply the base coat of paint. THIS IS CRITICAL. TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS STEP! By taking your time and carefully spraying the paint this sets you up for the final clear coat process.



THIS NEXT STEP IS ALSO CRUTIAL FOR A GOOD FINISH! The clear coat process, this is done in the same manner as the base coat. But take extra caution to not cause runs as they will be the most difficult to remove. this means using lighter coats in sweeping motion. to get a flatter finish without visible overlap lines I recommend alternating the direction of your movements from one coat to another. this will take up to 6-9 coats. the more coats you apply the deeper the color appears. Let stand 20 to 30 mins between coats.







The end result was a perfect match. While I had it off the truck and assembling it before it went on, I made a custom grill insert for it. I also freshened up the fogs by sanding them with 1500 to 3000grit and applying clear coat to seal them.

All parts ordered from "Rockautoparts.com"
All paint ordered from "Automotivetouchup.com"
