Paint Shop Update 5

 

OK! We're reaching towards the end now, base and clear coats are on every panel now. Next will be to paint the black areas, this will include: front and rear lips, side skirts, front quarter window frame, and the rocker panels. Everything will need to be fully cured before the guys block/sand everything flat. Than comes the flow coat...

The panels and doors are painted first. The guards and bonnet are secured on the mounting frame, this improves the overall finish by increasing the paint consistency from panel to panel.

Doors and rear bar. The front quarter window frames are masked off because they'll be painted black later.

And the engine bay! It's painted with Audi's Aviator Grey, I think it goes well with the theme of my car. A lot of people ask me why I didn't shave the bay, and it's simply because I prefer the look of the standard bay. Has more character ­čÖé
