Color me red

After all the hard work of getting the rear fenders straight, they were painted this afternoon. Chris and I spent the morning blocking out the final primer coat that was sprayed on last week. Once that was done, we went over the panels with a DA sander with a soft interface pad to remove the blocking scratches. Once the sanding was done, we put the panels in the booth, masked off the back side of them to keep the red paint off of the bedliner then sprayed a coat of urethane sealer on them. After the sealer was dry, 3 coats of red was sprayed. After those coats were dry, 3 coats of clear were laid down nice and slick. The clear coat will be sanded in a week or so and buffed back out to a super high gloss. This process makes the paint look a mile deep and provides the ultimate in reflection.
