Yesterday we prepped these parts for the ’52 Ford for paint. We blasted these parts a couple of weeks ago, but havent had a chance to paint them yet. We started off by sanding them with 180 grit paper to get a smooth surface. We then cleaned them very well with wax and grease remover. We then hung each part up in the booth so that all sides could be sprayed at the same time. Paul took over here by spraying a coat of PPG’s DPLV epoxy sealer. Once that was dry, it was followed with a couple of coats of eggshell black single stage. Most of these parts you will never see once on the truck but they must all function and look presentable just in case. Once reassembled, these parts will be ready for another 70 years of service.
These Camaro wheels are getting a fresh coat of paint. The owner wanted to add a custom touch to his 2010 Camaro. The factory wheels had a polished type look to them. We cleaned and sanded them down and proper prepped them for paint. Once they were in the booth a coat of PPG Epoxy sealer was sprayed on them to all proper adhesion of the top coat. The top coat is a semi-flat or eggshell black. Tomorrow the new tires get mounted and we will put them back on the car. Check back tomorrow to see the new look.
