Get your shine on
Today was a very productive day here at the shop. We took some time out this morning to get the bed and hood ready to paint and was able to start shooting them about lunch time. We started out with a full coat of urethane sealer followed by the lower charcoal color on the bed. Once that was dry, we masked it off and sprayed the top light blue color. These pictures really do not do the color justice. This color really looks good in person. It has so much more life and vibrance to it compared to the factory paint. Once the top color was dry, we sprayed two coats of PPG’s high solid clear coat. This provides the shine and protection of the base coat. Tomorrow we plan on wrapping up the body work on the cab and fenders, a final prime on those parts should wrap up the day tomorrow. We will then be ready to paint the cab in the same steps as today. The ultimate body transformation is progressing nicely.
