    DIY: surface rust repair/repaint white diamond???

    Hi I have a 2002 Escalade EXT, its White diamond and I would like to fix it myself since money is tight and winter is on the way. Any tips or product recommendations? What grit sand paper, what primer? I'm talking about aerosol spray can paints.

    Is there a kit I should be looking into? My color code is 800J I believe, does that sound right?

    Thanks for the help!

    Go to www.paintscratch.com and begin there. It's NOT easy. Rattle cans are not the way to a first-class paint repair. If the car has not been garaged, the color will no longer be "factory", but will be some lighter (sun-faded) shade. Tough to get a perfect without paint color spectrometry.

    Has anyone done this to a white diamond cadillac? I'm just wondering how the results are, so I can decide on if it will be worth doing myself.
