Workin’ the body

Now that all the removable pieces of the car have been painted, it is time to start on the vehicle proper.

The steps are the same has always, acid etching primer to bond to the metal and to provide a surface for the remaining layers to stick to, epoxy primer to seal the car and high build primer to provide that ultra smooth surface required for a mirror like finish.

You can see each of these steps in this series of photographs. The etching primer is visible in the first two photos as a gold color.

The epoxy primer can be seen as the black color in the third photo.

Finally the gray high builds primer is visible in the last three photos.

After the car is sanded to remove any imperfections in the metal, it will be time for the big payoff … paint.
