How do I apply a spray thinner?
The process of applying fade out thinner for spot repairs usually involves the following steps:

1. Preparation: Clean and degrease the area to be repaired carefully to ensure good adhesion of the new paint color.

2. Color Matching: Mix or match the right color for that vehicle using color cards, color codes or color knowledge.

3. Application: Apply the new paint color to the damaged area using a spray gun or touch-up micro brush. Gradual application and blending is key to achieving a natural fade out effect.

4. Fade out technique: Use the fade out thinner to soften and blend the color gradually against the existing paintwork. This step is the most critical and often requires experience. If you are into a do-it-yourself project, you can use youtube to see the technique done.

5. Polishing: After application and the actual fade out process, it may be necessary to carry out a fine polishing or polishing to achieve an even and smooth surface. This can possibly be done with sandpaper with a high grain size or wet sandpaper.

It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for correct use and dilution of the fade out thinner, as this may vary depending on the product. Read and follow the instructions that you will find on the product's technical data sheet.
