Cab is painted

Ahhh, Much better. We spent today in the booth spraying the cab on the ’52 Ford. After thoroughly cleaning the cab and masking off the floor and back wall, Paul sprayed a coat of urethane sealer over the entire cab. Once that had time to dry, 3 coats of red was sprayed allowing proper drying time in between. After the base coat was applied, 3 coats of PPG high solids clear was sprayed. This gives us enough material to wet sand and buff to a super smooth, ultra high gloss. We will plan on buffing it out next week. We want to give the clear plenty of time to dry so the sanding and buffing will be a little easier. We still have a few other parts to paint, and plan on doing them later this week.
