’52 Ford, back on track

DSCF7620 DSCF7615 DSCF7616 DSCF7617 DSCF7618 DSCF7619Work continued on the ’52 Ford today. We the body work on the hood pretty much wrapped up. There is only 2 more spots to block out before priming again. This hood was a bit of a challenge getting straight but we managed to do it. We also was able to pull the door out and get some repair work moving on it as well.

Bed time

IMG_4538 IMG_4539 IMG_4540 IMG_4541 IMG_4537Ahh, isn’t that better? The bed panels that were prepped yesterday got their turn in the booth today. The owner picked this very vibrant red for her hot rod. I think it fits quite nicely. We hung these parts up first thing this morning then prepped them and the booth for paint. Once they were prepped, we sprayed a coat of urethane sealer over the panels to ensure uniform coverage. Once that product had dried, we sprayed a few coats of the knock your eyes out red. Once that had sufficient drying time, 3 coats of PPG high solids clear coat was sprayed. These panels turned out very nicely. Tomorrow we will paint the rest of the bed panels that would not fit in the booth today. Next week these panels will get the High Performance Finish touch. These panels will get wet sanded and buffed to provide the customer with the ultimate gloss.
