Yesterday we started painting the Adam 12 project car, today we finished it. Since we sprayed the white on the jambs and roof yesterday, today’s job was to mask the white so we could lay down the black. We started by setting the fine line tape where we wanted the line for the black and white to be. Fine line is a rubbery tape that has a super clean edge so we get sharp crisp edges. We also fine lined the edges around the rockers and the quarters. Once we got all the taping done it was time to spray the black. This took us up until lunch. After we ate, we untapped the roof and jambs and cleared it all. The clear coat is where all the protection and gloss comes from. In a few days we will start the wet sanding and buffing process for the body. This process will make the surface even more glossy than now. It will remove all the orange peel and leave the surfaces extremely flat and smooth. This project is coming together and finally starting to look like something. Well, a police car to be exact.
