In the booth

Friday this Mustang finally got its turn in the paint booth.

The first three pictures show the car all taped up with the color layer applied. The color looks rather flat because the clear not only protects the color layer underneath but it also provides the shine.

The fourth photo shows me applying the clear coat to the car after the color coat had dried. Now you know why painters wear respirators.

The last three pictures show the car after the clear coat has been applied. Same car, same location, but a big difference in the way the car looks.

This is the second Mustang we have had in the shop this year in this color and I think this blue really flatters the car.
