Painting the Pony II
Yesterday was paint day for the body, today we got busy on the the rest of the parts. We spent all morning sanding and prepping these parts you see here in the booth for paint. After lunch, Chase got busy making them RED! As with all of our High Performance Finishes, we started the paint process with a coat of sealer, followed by 3 coats of red base coat then finally 3 coats of high solids clear. The clear is layer that makes this color actually POP. It also protects the base coat from the sun. Without clear over the base, the color coat would be eaten up from the sun because there is no UV protection in the base. These parts will get wet sanded and buffed just like the body will to ensure a super slick, mirror like finish. Hopefully we will start that process tomorrow on the body.
