Guess who’s back…

A nice solid body. We will get to sanding on this one next week and start the priming process. Once you have a system that works, you stick to it. So this car will get the same treatment as all the others. Epoxy, slick sand, block, body work, final prime. Its a tedious process but it yields great results.

Since most of them were rusty we opted to sand blast them in house to get the rust off. The first 2 pictures show Chris doing the majority of that work. However, standing in that position for a few hours is a bit uncomfortable so we switched off every so often to give our backs a break. As we finished blasting each piece Chase hung them up in the booth and prepped them for paint. We decided to use POR15 on these parts to prevent the rust from ever happening again. After that we used their chassis black to flatten out the look some. The car goes to the blaster next week, so we will use that time to get back on the Camaro. We should be able to move both of these projects along pretty smoothly.
