The owner of this 2003 Silverado wanted to freshen things up a bit. He bought the truck new and since it still ran great but looked bad he decided to paint it. After discussing his options we came up with a plan and got to work. We started by removing the lights, bumpers, handles, moldings and mirrors. We then sanded the whole truck down and fixed the very few small dents that it had. We then washed it a couple of times to make sure we had a clean truck, clean jambs and clean engine bay. We then masked off the ares that were not getting paint and started spraying. A few coats of PPG black followed by a couple coats of PPG’s high solids clear coat and we have very nice Silverado that shines better than new.
This new Silverado came into the shop to get a battle scar repaired. A bicycle handle bar got a little too close and put a good scratch in both doors. We repaired the scratch last Friday and slid it into the booth today for paint. As you can see it turned out really nice. Tomorrow we will put it all back together and replace the emblem on the door. It should be ready tomorrow evening.
