The past few days Chris has been working diligently on the doors and fenders for the ’67 Chevelle. We painted these parts a few weeks ago and now its time to go the extra mile for the High Performance Finish. We started by blocking these panels out with 1000 grit sandpaper to ensure a smooth flat surface. We then switched to 2000 grit paper to make the buffing a little easier. Then 3000 on a dual action sander to speed the buffing process up even more. These extra steps are what it takes to provide our customers with the ultimate in gloss and depth. Just take a look for yourself.
This Impala belongs to one of our repeat customers. Its in the shop to get the dash painted the correct color. When the owner bought the car, the dash had been painted gloss black. The new owner didn’t like that very much so he asked us to paint it back the way it was supposed to be. Here you can see the factory style look he was going for. It really looks better flat and it greatly reduces the glare on the windshield during night time driving. We had our glass guys re-install the windshield today to finish out the job.
After weeks of working on late model Mustangs, it was nice to work on a little GM iron. This LS6 powered Camaro belongs to the son of one of the Mustangs we have worked on in the past few months. We joke and tell him he is obviously the one who got all the brains in the family. Its all in good fun, but it works up the dad a bit. Anyway, he wanted to get the scoop on the hood painted black and a few other custom touches on here while we had it in the shop. We started by removing the hood and prepped it for paint like always. Once it was ready, we put it in the booth and sprayed a few coats of red over the front to fill in a few battle scars. Once that dried we masked off the scoop area to paint it black. We then pulled off the paper and sprayed 2 good coats of urethane clear coat. Tomorrow we will reinstall the hood and get the finished pictures.
