Special thanks to Zach: @Ultimate Rebuilds
It's time to repaint the entire BMW i8. This car has definitely had a few accidents, and the cosmetic condition was overall very poor, so we opted to repaint the entire car in BMW's individual Twilight Purple Paint. We saved a lot of money DIYing the job and you can see what a DIY garage paint job looks like for yourself.

  • Car looks awesome Sam! Love helping you out with these amazing cars and projects. But for some reason the check you mailed me bounced. Do I need to get in contact with Stepmom to receive my full payment?

    • @Howard Williams Go away. Quit trying to start shit.

    • 😂😂😂

    • @Eric Jay Lube job for lower exhausts (front &back), right?😝🤪🤪😜😂

    • DUDE! YESSSS!!! LMAO

    • Amazing work... this guy is going places.

  • Yuck color.

  • Ew ugly color choice

  • Okay... So, I watch videos like this and I see people who KNOW WHAT THE EFF THEY ARE DOING, and think, "That's amazing!" Then I realize they make it look effortless, because they've been doing it for YEARS! Part of me wants to mess around and try even plastidip on vehicles, but the other part of me is like, "Dude, no effin' way" Your car is beautiful and you should be proud of it.

  • It looks like a drug deales car, sorry😷🤔😂

  • I like the color, good choice

  • How did you fix the problem? Didn’t see the answer in the other video

  • My guy did this paint job in a garage and it still looks a thousand times better than Vtuned’ BMW done in a proper spray booth! Go figure!

  • This guy isn't a painter. He's an artist.

  • WOW very kool great info. AAAAAAAAAAA++++++++++++ again great video I liked it a lot keep up the great work,, maybe your step mom can paint your part,, or whack on some primer lol

  • You've probably been asked this question a 1000 times and I looked to see if you've ever put a video out on it. How do you deal with selling and or insuring a car that has been labeled as a salvage that was "totaled." I know when I used to work for a credit union, we would not finance these cars for people.

  • Nice white crocs. Omg so horrible.

  • That looks like a TVR Cerbera colour...

  • Fucking ugly colour

  • That car looks amazing. I love the colour

  • Wow...that paint job looks like Sh$t!

  • Well done Sam great vid as usual mate!!!

  • Put together like a Lego!!😂😂

  • Have you seen the inflatable paint booth? The GoonSquad has one. Looks and works well.

  • Where is your mirror on the passenger side? 😀

  • Sweet baby Elvis, was it tax season because the number of mid-roll ads was way beyond acceptable

  • Shit music

  • Purple, why? Did have to be purple? I mean really, purple?

  • To be fair, I said paint it up like the FE pace car, but I do love me some metallic purple...

  • Prep is everything with painting, deffo not the place to be cutting corners...

  • Zach is a master! Beauty job!!

  • Sam why buff this, the thing looks fine, also its generally not a good idea to put tape on fresh clear or fresh anything for that matter, granted I dont think this is the kinda tape that eats the clear, but the type that they use on packages does FYI like just stuff a towel in there or a rubber matt, and going forward I would probably recommend keeping a binder with all the paint codes and types you've used for each car, as with your project list yeah, your gonna forget a few lol also any update on the ferrari 360?

  • Paintjob looks awesome! Very well done! The color... not so much.

  • Sam you should get Apple's new purple iPhone to match your car. And a matching purple hand bag too.... Ignore me, I'm just jealous, really really jealous....

  • Not a fan of the color, but it looks good

  • Great video. Finally a Samcrac video about a CAR and no ridiculous gimmicks with Rich or his "stepmother"...

  • Love this color. You should try and have all of the interior accents purple instead of the BMW blue.

  • I hope you took care of this kid money wise Sam

  • What brand paint is this...Eastwood?

  • Was that @LegitStreetCars garage @3:39?

  • Oh are we done with pornstar? If we are I can resub.. the joke was old and played out.. the rich jokes are old and played out.. the original samcrac vids are where it’s at.. hoping to see it come back

  • Looking great!

  • Nice to see "standard" Sam again, without the rest of the Cartel. Yip, right now that BMW catch the eye again. 👌🏻👍🏻

  • Loos great but you should of went with ice matte white

  • You lost me at RING. Seriously.

  • Wow Zach is the man ,Incredible skills,given the rite tools and facility he could be one of the best out there

  • Ran out of money to get your step mom to Appear in your videos

  • The new car is an bmw e39

  • +samcrac Beautiful!!! What was that electric paint gun you used with the inflatable paint booth? +1 for a great rebuild!

  • Zack is a damn good painter with what he’s working with

  • Now we know Sam's favorite color is purple.

  • Should have wet the floor before painting

  • Looks Amazing. Wish it was a different color, reminds me of the early 90’s for some reason. But who cares still looks great

  • How many hours in paint?

  • Excellent choice, in color combination!

  • If i have to nitpick... I do see some panel gaps that are offline there Sam. The hood is a bit crooked. The paint is awesome!

  • I preferred the original colour, in that constant sunlight it looks purple pink to me on video ..🤔🤔😳😳😯😯🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

  • Glad you are getting more involved with diy painting it’s really addicting once you learn and can be extremely satisfying , as for Zach , great job brother ! Stay sprayin bro 🤙🏻

  • Stepmom?

  • Our boi Zach didn't even have to put the Crocs into 4wheel drive for this one...

  • Your sponsor, Eastwood, is probably pissed because you said a $10 Harbor Freight gun works just as well, lol.

  • Sorry Sam but that is a very ugly color

    • Agreed, it's hideous pinky purple...🙄🇬🇧

  • that guy should buy a suit to paint in. the skin also absorbs liquids

  • Paint is nice, but not perfect - there is a rough edge between purple and black, and some defects are visible. Also, painting in such conditions can't be perfect, dust from painting one part, seats on another freshly painted parts. It is not a big problem when you paint all car at once, but here paint on one part may dry a little, and then is "dusted" with paint from another part. This can be repaired by buffing the surfaces, but won't be a perfect finish.

  • Glad to see it done, now race with Rich 😎🔥

  • Congratulations to Zack!! Awesome, awesome painting work

  • Hey, are those panels like legos? I heard they were like legos and it would be cool if they were like legos so taking them off and back on would be like legos.

  • Needs a set of black rims

  • Seriously Purple???? that will deffinitly limit your pool of buyers

  • Why god damn purple ?

  • Impressive young man, nice car now.

  • Beautiful color

  • Hope you don't bake that tape right into the fresh paint job.

  • Great job! Paint looks awesome! I’m sure someone has mentioned it but I think your front wheels are on the wrong sides. Those wheels are side specific.

  • Is Zach always working this fast?

  • I like that purple color -- it definitely pops in the sun. Looking forward to seeing it wet-sanded, buffed, and polished. Gonna be awesome!

  • Congrats, i8 looks gorgeous. Keep it up, enjoying seeing a complete vehicle. I know someday soon you will finish the 360. Will be watching and waiting.

  • Sorry, purple not doing it for me...but the paint job was nice.

  • Color is awful. Looks like Sharon Osbourne’s hair.

  • Finally, actual informative content instead of wink wink nudge nudge jokes.

  • Great work Zach.

  • Another purple car ? Come on Sam, Stradman has the purple car market cornered already.

  • You can tell a good paint job when the reflected image is nice and sharp. No wavy image or fuzzy edges. All that in a homemade paint booth. Step mom should invest in a nice paint shop for this talented guy. She'll get her investment back quicker than Sam.

  • Eastwood clear coat is garbage 😂. If you want a budget clear coat go for LKQ European.

  • You better be paying this kid in something other than "exposure"

  • Is there a glass and a half of milk in that colour?

  • On some of your earlier videos you talked about shop manuals-- who do you get yours from?

  • Paint work is great.... just not a fan of the color..... the car was screaming to be Laguna Seca Blue

  • loving this i8 Sam! Where's Rich haha

  • Great insight into the paint task on the i8. Great to see YTs’ working together.

  • What’s the name of the song that says “and a comma and a comma”? Please

  • Top job Sam and Zack!

  • Looks awesome!! Now go park it in a cow field and let it sit....for months and months and months.

  • Important corners being cut? Like, not having an EPA compliant spray booth (required for businesses) and not using dust-free filtered air in a climate controlled booth, so there's no guessing about thinning and orange peel? You may not need all that, but a business *does* . What happened to your bouncy-house inflatable spray booth?

  • Clean title ??

  • Purple Prius.

  • Do you know the color purple sometimes indicates sexual frustration?

  • Really nice paint job. I must agree on the Harbor Freight HVLP guns, they really are excellent in terms of value for money and give great results.

  • Couldn't make it thru the ring advert... jesus

  • Sam you and Zac did a incredible job with the paint job on the BMWi8!🐟

  • Sam buy this guy a proper paint booth, or get your step mom to buy him one.

  • Strada wanna be

  • Looks good sam

  • I have used the cheap harbor freight purple gun. I can tell you from experience, if you take the time to pull it apart,clean it well, spray about an ounce of solvent to help clean it. Than spend as much time as needed adjusting adjusting gun properly on a test piece. You can get really good results . You are already on SEnewss, look up "how to adjust a hvlp". Don't be discouraged if first paint job doesn't turn out so well, study your results and figure out your mistakes. It will get better as you learn. My first paint job made an orange look smooth. Now after using the hvlp for anything that needs painted, I have a lot of practice and can now lay down "glass". Prep work is the most time consuming and the most important part. Don't cut corners on prep. Learned that from experience as well. People aren't lying when they say prep is 90%.

  • Looks like a porn stars car
