Big 3 Body Secrets

 

 

The overall body of the car is what makes people stop and stare when you’re driving down the road. So, making sure someone or yourself does a good job, is essentially crucial and can sometimes be harder than you think. These Big 3 “Body Secrets” are sure to help you in moments you lost hope.

For instance, some people can turn a wrench extremely well, but can’t keep a steady paint hand. However, that’s not what this post is about.

We will be showing you some simple tech tips to use when painting, priming, sanding and buffing your classic or muscle car. The car being used in the post is a Rolls-Royce Silvercloud build done at Palm Beach Customs.

In the video, we used Guide Coat black lacquer bomb spray on the car to be able to see the imperfections once we run the blocking on a car.

We then re-primed with another half-gallon of urethane primer then blocked with 80 grit; shown in the next video.

 

 

In this video, John goes over two of the three “secrets”, one being the way he sands to make sure you are getting each and every sport thoroughly.

For instance, the black lacquer spray used in the first video, allowed John to see the “low” points in the car and primer, requiring more sanding in that particular area and primer.
