Prepping for color

The owner has picked her color and we plan on shooting a few of them tomorrow. Since we have about 6 pieces ready we will have to paint them in batches because there just isnt enough room to hang them all up at one time. If you remember we have prepped these by applying a coat of epoxy primer to the bare metal. Once that was dry we sprayed a couple of coats of urethane primer. Since these panels were new, there wasn’t much work to be done to them. We sanded all the flat areas first, then used a dual action sander to go over the big areas. All the little nooks and crannies were sanded by hand. This all ensures proper adhesion of the top coats. Stay tuned tomorrow to see what color these will be. Its a big day!
