Yesterday these ’52 parts were metal worked, sanded and prepped for primer. A coat of epoxy was sprayed late yesterday, but it didnt dry in time for the Slick Sand. First thing this morning, after the shop warmed up of course, Chris sprayed 4 good coats of super high build Slick Sand primer to the hood and front valence panel. Next week we will start blocking and straightening these panels.
A customer of ours bought a couple of Mustangs and wanted to get the brake calipers painted so we gladly obliged. The yellow ones will match the car. Its actually the same Mustang we painted the roof stripes on a month ago. The charcoal calipers are going on a black car but it will soon have matching Saleen stripes. You should see it here in a couple of weeks. We started with brand new calipers. They were cleaned and prepped before a coat of PPG DP sealer was applied. Once that dried, it was followed with base coat then clear coat. These will go on the car first of next week.
