September 6, 2017
Normally the new cars require a primer sealer on the new sheet metal parts then a few coats of base color and 2-3 coats of high grade urethane clear coat to match the OEM finish . When we refinish the classic cars It can be a very different procedure with body work and multi coats of primer and blocking the primer to straighten the sheet metal .
Once the sheet metal is ready for paint Then the base coats are applied usually 4-5 coats of base and 3 coats of clearThen the car is sanded with 500 grit wet sand paper and 600 grit then an additional 3-4 coats of flow clear is applied ( look below )
