In the booth

This 1969 El Camino is in the shop for a little TLC.

The first picture shows the car … um, truck … er, vehicle after the body has been primed and blocked to remove any slight imperfections in the body work so the paint looks its best.

In the second photo you can see that the black and red color layers have been applied. In case you are wondering how different color paints are applied, it is really very simple.

You mask off the vehicle for one color, say the red, and apply that color. After the paint dries, you remove the masking, remask for the other color, and repeat.

Most people are surprised at how flat the color layer is until the clear coat is applied. That’s the next step.
