To spray paint a car, first make sure you spray in a well-ventilated area, and wear a mask and goggles for safety. When you’re ready to paint, shake the can for at least 3 minutes. Next, hold the can about 10 inches away and parallel to the car’s surface, and spray the paint using even, horizontal strokes. Try your best to move at a consistent speed to get an even coat. Apply at least 2 coats, with a 10-minute break between each coat. Finally, wait 30 minutes before spraying a coat of clear paint, and let the car dry for 24 hours.
