Happy trails

Now that the rush in the booth is past, I could devote some time to painting this trailer. The first two pictures show the trailer after primer, applied Monday, is sanded smooth. As you can see in the second picture, we at JMC AutoworX use out exclusive anti-grav technology to suspend objects for paint. Pay no attention to those things that look like wires … they’re nothing.

Pictures three and four show the trailer after the the application of the base coat, the color part of the finish. The base coat dries to a near flat finish, as you can see in the photos, but we will fix that in the next step.

The last four pictures, numbers 5-8, show the trailer after the clear coat has been applied. The clear coat not only protects the base coat with a tough plastic shell, it also give the paint its depth and luster.

We will let the shell hang out in the booth for a little while, until the clear dries, then we will take it down and apply some striping to match the trike that will be pulling it.

Then the owner will be ready to hit the trail with their color-matched trailer in tow.
