Paintucation Paint Your Own Car DVD is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very informative My dad and I are restoring an old Mustang, and I figured that we would sit down and watch this one together and take notes. Boy did we ever. Even after scouring the Internet for months for every scrap of information on painting that I could, this DVD still had loads of information and tips that we hadn't even thought of. Only bad part about it was that his car looked twice as good as mine in only (so it would seem) a fraction of the time we spent to get ours to that point, haha. Overall, great information, and worth the cash if you pay attention and follow along.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Old, poor quality and redundent These video are of poor quality and extremly old. "Paint Your Own Car" is a low quality video with high grainy seens and some stuttering during camera panning. The rest of the videos are so old that the products available now are far superior. Most of the tecniques are redundant through out the other disks. You will find some of the demonstrations useful but you will have to sift through the rest to get there. Sent to JR for his imput.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mettal Prep Paintucation This is the second Paintucation DVD that I've gotten. The first was Panel Replacement and I did a review on that. I liked that DVD so I ordered this one hoping for the same level of expertise in the presentation. My first reaction was "Who is that talking" and my second was "WOW look at all that hair" This is an older DVD (2000) and Kevin was much younger then (as we all were) but his presentation was good and the information was informative and to the point. Not as detailed as the Panel DVD, but I did learn from it. I would recommend this to a novice trying to do advanced body repair for the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good info all in one place Finished watching the Body Panel Replacement, which was nice because it showed me that there really isn't any magic behind it. If you have good metal working skills, and keep your lines you're in good shape. Also weld though primer is a must. A hammer and dolly is a necessity if fitting a panel as is a pneumatic punch. Sadly as a DSM owner I don't think I have replacement body panels available to me. I'd buy another dvd from him. There were little tips and tricks along the way it is a nice alternative as it saves me from tons of time on YouTube where I don't know the validity of the source. Edit: also had to download VLC player to play the 2nd side of the DVD, Toshiba player wouldn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it I am a beginner and have done almost 0 body work, aside from using my stud welder to pull dents out of my project car. I have 2 panels, one dented and one rusted that I wanted to replace with good aftermarket metal. I read up on it, but just didn't feel safe taking it on by myself. I ran across this DVD and figured I had already spent the same money on a body work book, why not try the dvd. I was not disappointed, I can't think of a question I had that wasn't answered. Kevin does a great job walking you through panel replacement step by step, not skipping anything. You get to see partial panel replacement and later a whole quarter panel from cutting to welding it back in. I am 100% pleased with this DVD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zowie! Found the video informative. Haven't painted in decades,(I'm old), and this helped to dust off the brain. Info on new paint systems was also helpful. I'm tired now, need some warm milk and a cookie.........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot o info and tricks The video contains a lot of good information. I had to pause and rewind many times so I could take notes. However, I feel that I can paint my own car and might even be brave enough to change colors using Kevin's tricks and tips. I also like how he explained how to make repairs prior to painting. It really was helpful and I recommend this to anyone painting a car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality educational material! Kevin Tetz's Paintucation series is the best of the best. He leaves no stone unturned in his quest to deliver the information and achievable, reproducible skill sets that we as car lover's want and need. Each and every DVD in the series is top quality educational material. After watching his lessons, and getting a little practice, you will have an excellent chance of producing a quality job on your own project! And this is Kevin's obvious goal! The only drawback I see is that he often uses Fords as his models - I'm a Chevy guy! But I am well pleased anyway! Thank you Kevin!
