These are spay out cards for the Camaro. We do these to make sure that the customer is happy with the color that will be on their car. Its much easier to get it approved and make changes BEFORE the car is painted . This Camaro will have racing stripes on it so I thought I’d give them options just so they can see what the stripes would like in different colors. Now they can just pick the one they like the best or make suggestions and we will make the changes to fit their wants.
Today was a great day! We sprayed some epoxy primer on some Chevelle parts and slick sand on the fenders. The epoxy is great for bare metal. It fully encapsulates the panel with a tough water proof coating that sticks to metal better than glue. Over top of that we sprayed 3 coats of slick sand super high build primer on the outside of the fenders. There is no reason to put that on the inside parts of the jambs. The product is costly and its very labor intensive to sand. So we dont use it on jambs. The Slick Sand is used to have a thick film build to have something to block. Blocking ensures that the panel is straight and free from waves and small dings. Its a long tedious process but it pays off in the long run.
We were also able to get the doors off and taken fully apart today. Here you see Chris cleaning up some edges on the jambs. The hinges were sandblasted today too. Tomorrow we hope to get the doors to the same point the fenders are to today.
