Hi ho silver …

Yesterday I got this Versa trimmed out, another way of saying I painted all the parts that are hard to reach when the car is put together. Today … I painted the rest of it.

The first picture shows the car after the application of the color layer. Even though only the fender and front door were actually damaged, I blended the paint into the rear door and across the hood to hide the repair.

The second picture shows the car after the clear layer has been laid on. Where the base coat, the actual color on the car, dries to a flat and lifeless finish, the clear coat brings the sizzle to the finish. These two photographs show in stark detail how the clear makes the color underneath pop off the car.

That’s a pretty big improvement for a product you can’t even see.
