Progress at the body shop.

Offline
Getting anxious? I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
There are many body shops that do not wetsand, is this what these guys do? I noticed a lot of metal showing.

I think they wet sand the prime again and again till it is like a babys skin. Then color and sand and buff between at least two coats of color maybe more, then the same with 6 or eight of clear to finish off. We will see.

I told him it was not a trailer queen but a very nice sunday car. The examples I saw of his completed work were just fine.

Trevor...look at the photo of the bonnet....its been primered for the last time & they're block sanding it......the body will go through another set of priming & any touch up body work then final prime & block sanding before paint....actually, it might get primed more than once again before they're finished

That bonnet where the block sanding was finished was sooooooo smooth....man!
